A sad state

I am the number one bookcrosser in my city. There are 91 registered members. I have registered and released about 150 books, which is hardly earth-shattering, yet is well above my nearest competitor. If you can call it a competition. Most of the 91 persons registered in this city have registered no books at all - I assume they found a book and dutifully entered a journal note saying so, but while they actually took the time to register themselves (it isn't required) they have not released any books or registered any others.

The top bookcrosser, period, has registered over 20,000 books...wowser. Many bookcrossers register 40 - 50 books a week! I could do more, but I read almost all of the books that I release. I can also not quuite see myself sitting at the computer registering book after book. It can be made simpler by using pre-printed labels (which I use almost exclusively) and then not entering much in the journal, but even then it is one at a time, so if each book takes three minutes that would be 150 minutes a week to register 50 books. I guess that's not so awful...I spend that much time playing FreeCell.
