Based on the Book: Books to Movies 376

Readers read. That's a given. Now's your chance to read, watch and chat about all those books turned into movies: past, present and future. Tell us what you think.

Bugs and Broken Bits Reporting (formerly Beta Site Testing) 2464

Please be sure to be as precise and clear as you can be in relaying information on quirks, bugs, things not working correctly, broken links etc. Some suggestions for how to help make sure your post gives complete information etc can be found here.

Random and Not-So-Random Acts of BookCrossing Kindness 41853

Are you searching for the perfect next reader for a book? Perhaps you want to offer a book (or books) as a contest prize, or just want to give some books away. Maybe you want to swap books with another person, or search for someone to RABCK*. Here is a good place to start. You can also use this forum if you are in search of (ISO) a particular title. And don't forget to search BookCrossing wishlists, to see if someone is wishing for a specific book (You'll need to click on "wishlists"). Please note: exchanging or trading or swapping by any other name is still a completely personal choice, and not all members wish to participate. Check profiles and individual Private Message pages for indications regarding trading preferences, and observe site etiquette regarding requesting a book.

Region Cleanup: Cities & Crossing Zones 1906

Please note: Region cleanup is done by our most excellent team of volunteer BookCrossers, aka our Region Manager Team. Please post your requests, with as much detail as possible, and we will tend to them as soon as we're able. Thank you for your patience.

Found a duplicate city in your country? Is your favorite release zone listed 4 times, or (gulp) does it have a typo in it? Do you know of a zone that is mis-mapped, has moved or is no longer in existence? Post it here and be sure to include as much information as you can (Country, State, City, Zone name, as it is listed and as it should be), and our volunteer Region Managers and Support team will try to fix it for you and respond here. More info can be found here.

If you have entered a release zone but made a typo, you can fix that yourself: look the zone up on Go Hunting, and find the Edit button that will let you correct the name and address.
