bookcrossing

I've been a member of bookcrossing for just over a year - I joined on March 3, 2006. In that time I have registered 179 books and released most of them. I have noticed several other book sites but all that I have seen have involved trading or selling books rather than just freeing them. I suspect that many people just can't handle all that freedom. For their books, anyway.

If they can't
there is always "keep in permanent collection."

Hi, sorry I haven't been on here much but I have been active with BC locally. In fact, I am going to ask our apartment manager if I could start an OBCZ in his office. We have 300+ apartments and most don't have a lot of money, I would assume so it would be a great way to promote community and reading combined.

Re: If they can't
That's right. I keep certain books in my permanent collection and don't figure I'll ever give them away. But it's cool to have them categorized online anyway!

That's a great idea for your apartment complex. I have approached some bookstores about having a bookcrossing zone but they seem to think people will not buy books then! But my experience is that I buy more books rather than fewer, and those I give away just might be reaching people who can't buy books at all to begin with. So it's good all around.

I think a lot of people put too much value on material things and/or feel like everything in life must be tit for tat. It's sad because 'stuff' just weighs you down more, it doesn't add value to your life.
