hello everyone! I realise this should maybe be in the books forum, but it seems a bit dead at the mo and more people will read it here.. anyway..

Ive just come across this website - www.bookcrossing.com
You register for free, and then register books you dont want any more. These books get an individual number which you put inside the front cover, and then you can either send it to a friend, or 'free' the book by leaving it on a train/library/shop/bench.. anywhere, for someone else to pick up. They can see the number inside the book and register that they have found it.. that way you can track your book all over the country..! I think its such a great concept.. making the world a library.

Any thoughts anyone? have a look at the website.. and join in, i am!

p.s. im not trying to sell this site cos its free anyway, i just thought it was such a good idea..

So ur only actually going to know where your book is if the person who picked it up can be bothered going on this website (if they know about it)

thats only a sideline.. better is the happy thought that your book is being handed on to complete strangers, who you will never meet, but who have your book.. sounds poetic and sappy..but i think its a nice idea
