BookCrossing

I love this idea: BookCrossing - FREE YOUR BOOKS!: "bookcrossing
n. the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise.
(added to the Concise Oxford English Dictionary in August 2004)"

I think I'm going to look over my shelves, register me some books, then drop them off at the train station. And right after that, I'll finally be ready to study Dutch. I'm almost sure of it.

Bookcrossing is alive and well here in rural Wyoming, but most of the novels and books are either gay or have a WAY liberal slant. I'm almost assured to find our books sitting in the dumpster by the end of the day.

Ha! I guess it's not so funny when you're living it, though.

I really, really, really enjoy your posts and movies. And also your
sculptures. Very beautiful. Very, very beautiful. Even more
beautiful than the Ronald McDonald urinal here.

If you ever get our way, be sure to let us know. We can show you a
fine cup of coffee. And then you can pee in Ronald's mouth your own
self. (I'm hoping you've read that post - otherwise you'll think I'm even stranger than I am.)

bookcrossing has been hot in my home town, especially those starbucks in vancouver downtown. but here?? last time i tried to leave a book in a cafe in rotterdam, the waitress just took it and almost (i stopped her, of coz) threw it in the garbage. i've never seen any books left on the train or cafe though, only those free newspaper.

anyway, hope you could find some good books from bookcrossing ;-)
