Maybe find or start an OBCZ.
Gory, you hit the nail on its head! No one (not one person!) in my family will journal the books I give them.
My solution was to have my husband build me a Little free Library. e didn't have to make any journal entries to do this. :)
Be aware that Little Free Libraries have a very poor "catch" rate. I took matters into my own hands, though. I did not want to make my LFL into an OBCZ, but it has kind of evolved into a BookCrossing zone anyhow (by itself - really!). I can't resist registering donated books. That's not all, though....
I made a Facebook page for my Little Free Library. There I get to talk about BookCrossing alI I want. Well...it's *my* Little Free Library and *my* Facebook page. Ha!
I often talk about BookCrossing (but not always - so others don't get overwhelmed with it or scared by it) on my LFL FB page. When I get an interesting "catch", I always post it there. I sometimes (but not too often) link to BookCrossing.
Surprisingly, this is what happened.
1. A BookCrosser I've never heard of before used my Little Free Library as a release zone.
2. Other BookCrossers whom I do know use my LFL as a release zone.
3. Neighbors who use my Little Free Library have joined BookCrossing!!! This was most surprising.
Bottom line...Now I frequently get "catches" from books released at my Little Free Library.
Here's the last LFL "catch"...http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12027138
Here's the LFL FB page...https://www.facebook.com/LittleFreeLibrary7720Twinbrook
What's funny about this one was that the book did not move in my own LFL so I moved it to another nearby LFL where the book was picked up by a long-time Bookcrosser and taken out of state! I just happened to meet Derwoodsman for the very first time this year (at a book festival!).
Anyway...you get my drift. :D
