The "3 Rs" of BookCrossing...
1. Read a good book (you already know how to do that)
2. Register it here (along with your journal comments), get a unique BCID (BookCrossing ID number), and label the book
3. 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 on the book, others can Go Hunting for it and try to find it!

That's all there is to it. It doesn't cost anything to join, there are free bookplates but you can order a kit with bookplates, sticky notes and bookmarks and pay for it as a donation. I really enjoy doing this and would recommend it to anyone.

Antigone and I are going to Monahans tomorrow. Might be fun to release a book into the wild together there.

Ooo... that's neat.... Mom, you should totally try it.

I'm really attached to my books. (Uh oh)
