I'm a new blogger (only since last summer), but I've been bookcrossing since 2002. There are now close to 3/4 of a million Bookcrossers around the world.
Why, then, I wonder, have I never run into a BCer in the book blogging world?
Bookcrossing is my favorite book site. I've registered over 5,000 books. By the end of this year, I plan to have released 5,000 books. One of my books, Book Lust, has traveled to over 75 people around the world.
Do you know what Bookcrossing is?
The idea behind it is that people read books and then pass them on, instead of leaving them on their shelves to gather dust. Each book is registered with a number and then is left somewhere. If someone else finds it and reads it, he can go to the site and make comments about the book.
My most successful release day was at the Texas Book Fair in Austin, Texas several years ago. I released 75 books and about 20 were logged in.
I am getting ready for the Texas Library Association meeting this spring in Houston. It is always a great place to release books.
Here is my shelf at Bookcrossing. My name there is debnance. Take a look at my available books. I am always happy to trade (though, sadly, I can no longer trade internationally due to rising postal costs).
