I recently signed up to http://www.bookcrossing.com.

Book Crossing is a way of tracking books released and shared by strangers.

Grab a book off your shelf that you don't mind parting with, slap a sticker on it (or even just write in the cover) and register it on the website. Once it has a reference number you can release it, either by passing it on to someone you know (controlled release), or by leaving it somewhere for people to find (wild release).

When someone finds the book they can enter the ref number into the site and find out where it has been. Then they can read it and release it again for someone else to find.

World book day is coming up on the 1st March. Why not check out Book Crossing and find out if any books have been released near you, or release some of your own.

Cool idea Chrissey, thanks for sharing.
