Do you love your books enough to let them go? Do you love the message in them enough for it to travel far and wide and give joy to other people? That is the premise www.bookcrossing.com is based on. It is an online community of book lovers who leave their books in public places to be picked up and read by others and send the book on its own journey. So many of our books just sit on our bookshelves catching dust, never to be picked up again. BookCrossing provides an innovative distribution channel for our books. You label the book with a unique BCID you want to pass on, leave it in a public place, essentially releasing it in the wilderness of literary space, and wait for someone to catch the book, read it and pay it forward. The best part, you can see the incredible journey your book has which makes you feel so much better about letting your book go. To date over 850,000 active BookCrossers have collectively registered almost 7 million books which are traveling around 130 countries!
