    When I moved I unpacked some book lates for this – so a few of the books destined for the second hand shop are going to be released into the wild tomorrow. Hope they find a good few homes on their journey.

    Anyone else do bookcrossing?

    I was thinking of doing this with some of my books! Although here at work, folks just leave them in the break room, and they usually get adopted pretty fast. Oprah-approved books go especially fast. My beloved sci-fi, not so much, so those might get stickered and released.

    Did you make the stickers? How are you id’ing them?

    Anyone else do bookcrossing?

    i love this idea!
    we’ve been practicing it…unofficially…while on holidays in thailand and bali.
    we often pick up a book in a cafe or small hotel…and leave another in it’s place.
    it seems to be the traveller’s way.
    nobody wants to be carrying too many books in a bag when they are on the move.

    i’ll sign up for bookcrossing when i get home and thank you for the link!

    Anyone else do bookcrossing?

    I bought book stickers from the website hapydogs and then I get a book I’d number with everyone I’d register – however you could do the same with a post-it

    I love bookcrossing.com, it is so much fun to see where your books end up.

    I’m a flight attendant who loves to read. I will often grab a paperback in the airport bookstore, read it overnight, and then leave it in the crew room for other employees or at a gate for passengers.

    I keep a few of the bookplates and a few of the post its notes from the bookcrossing website in my bag. Easy enough to do quickly.
