"We all know books burn -- yet we have the greater knowledge that books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can abolish memory... In this war, we know books are weapons."
Hi, and welcome! If you want to try and find BookCrossing books, see the "go hunting" pages under the "books and people" tab; that will show you locations where books have been released within the last 30 days. If you click down to specific locations, you can see lists of books; clicking on the books will show you the individual release notes, which *may* include detailed descriptions of where the books were left, and possibly even photographs.
That said, there's no guarantee that the books will still be at the same spot - and not everyone likes to make specific release notes, so you may see lots of entries that only say "somewhere in town" or something similarly vague. So it's a bit of a gamble!
And do check out the site FAQ and "How to BookCross" entries under the "information" tab; that's a good way to learn about BookCrossing.
