Let's get right down to it. You know the feeling you get after reading a book that speaks to you, that touches your life, a feeling that you want to share it with someone else? BookCrossing.com gives you a simple way to share books with the world, and follow their paths forever!

The "3 Rs" of BookCrossing...

Read a good book (you already know how to do that)
Register it here (http://www.bookcrossing.com/register) (along with your journal comments), get a unique BCID (BookCrossing ID number), and label the book (http://www.bookcrossing.com/labels)
Release it for someone else to read (give it to a friend, leave it on a park bench, donate it to charity, "forget" it in a coffee shop, etc.), and get notified by email each time someone comes here and records a journal entry for that book. And if you make Release Notes (http://www.bookcrossing.com/release) on the book, others can Go Hunting (http://www.bookcrossing.com/hunt) for it and try to find it! Sounds easy, right? Well it is. It's also a fascinating exercise in fate, karma, or whatever you want to call the chain of events that can occur between two or more lives and one piece of literature. Oh, and we should mention, it's absolutely free and absolutely private, too.
So go grab a book or two from your shelves now (they're not doing anyone any good there, are they?), register (http://www.bookcrossing.com/register) them here, jot down our URL and the BCID we'll give you inside the covers, and then give them away or leave them where someone will find them.

Remember that scent? Basically the scent of a woman who needs a shower! Very distinctive, musky. It still wafts by on very rare occasions, in a place like New York City.
