BookCrossing is a free online book club of infinite proportion, the first and only of its kind. Inside, you'll find millions of book reviews and hundreds of thousands of passionate readers just like you.


I've never personally found a book like this. But I may give this try.

Has anyone ever come across a book in public with a BCID?

I think this is an interesting approach to spreading books.

My local county library is five minutes away, and being able to access the book list on line and have any book that is listed sent to my branch covers most all of my needs. The only limitations are the library hours, and popular new releases waiting line.

I thought about trying the online books, but my monitor is a 19" CRT, and is just not going to work as I do my reading in bed. :thumbsup:

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

At about a thousand pages I would think this book would be a candidate for the wire suspension method too.
