Today I’m here to tell you about a very interesting website, www.bookcrossing.com. The site is used by a network of people who enjoy reading books.

Users can register a specific copy of a book on the site so that it is given a unique tracking number. When a bookcrossing member is done reading said book he “releases it into the wild.”

Someone happened to leave a bookcrossing book in Hot D***a, and now I’m reading it. It’s called “The Ha-Ha.” You’ll just have to check the site to see where I release it when I’m done.

Right now there are approximately 20 books released in the Pittsburgh area. I’ve noticed that in Toronto there are over 1000. I hope to visit Toronto in July. Wouldn’t it be something if I succeeded in moving most of that city’s collection here? You can hold a lot of books in a minivan, you know.
