Catch a book.

The Vancouver Sun last weekend had an article about releasing a mystery book and watch it travel. Also known as Catch and Release.
Book crossing is a web site where a person can register a book, and then pass it on to someone else. Each book has an id# so you can watch it travel across the country or around the world. I am always scrounging around for a good read when I am tent trailering or sailing and the first thing, when we register for the night is to locate the book shelf in the office, where generally the rules are if you leave a book, you can exchange it for another.
So I have joined up, I'll have to print up some labels for the inside of each book and a note for the cover and see what happens.

I've been doing Book Crossings for over a year. It's great fun to drop a book somewhere and watch it travel. My farthest-flung is still in Cairo as far as I know.

Hi, there,
Welcome to BookCrossing! I notice you are in B.C., Canada.
Did you know there is a Lower Mainland BookCrossing Meetup group? Come & see us sometime. We always have fun and we have LOTS of books. Watch for us at Word on the Street in Vancouver in the fall. http://bookcrossing.meetup.com/6/about/
