Just in case you missed it.........

  1. www.bookcrossing.com You've come to a friendly place, and we welcome you to our book-lovers' community. What is BookCrossing, you ask? It's a global book club that crosses time and space. It's a reading group that knows no geographical boundaries. Do you like free books? How about free book clubs?. Well, the books our members leave in the wild are free... but it's the act of freeing books that points to the heart of BookCrossing. Book trading has never been more exciting, more serendipitous, than with BookCrossing. Our goal, simply, is to make the whole world a library. BookCrossing is a book exchange of infinite proportion, the first and only of its kind.

    Here at BookCrossing.com you'll find tens of thousands of book reviews, book ratings, and book recommendations, because each time a book changes hands our members can leave journal entries telling the world of their experiences. Our LeaderBoard has Book Lists that reflect the book trading activities of our members, showing the recently released books, the recently found books, and the most traveled books.

    But let's get right down to it. You know the feeling you get after reading a book that speaks to you, that touches your life, a feeling that you want to share it with someone else? BookCrossing.com gives you a simple way to share books with the world, and follow their paths forever more!

    The "3 Rs" of BookCrossing...

    READ a good book.
    REGISTER it here (along with your journal comments), get a unique BCID (BookCrossing ID number), and label the book
    RELEASEit for someone else to read , and get notified by email each time someone comes here and records journal entries for that book. And if you make Release Notes on the book, others can Go Hunting for it and try to find it!
    It's a way of passing on books that you've read and want to share with others to enjoy and you can keep track of where your book has gone.
    May God Bless you and Yours!

    It's fun because when you've read a book that you've bought or been given and you just don't have the room to keep it you leave it somewhere with a little message in it and someone else picks it up (hopefully) and reads it and logs on and tells how they liked it and they pass it on and on and on. It's all free and fun to see where the books have gone and what others think of it. Just thought I'd share this and hope you all enjoy. God Bless.

    Sounds great !! I love books !!! I belong to two book clubs ...

    we meet once a month. A member reads a book and then

    gives a report on it. The reports are usually written and

    explored from a critical reading perspective.

    We explore the author's choice of names for his/her character/ places....how he tells the story...what the point is he is trying to get across.

    Some books are discussed for two hours or more. It

    is very interesting. Then, it's cheese & wine time..

    That sounds really interesting! And it's free? I guess I'll have to check it out on my next day off.

    What a great idea. I have boxes of books and no room for them, now I can release them into the wild and see where they land.
