I have been developing in the last weeks a tool for people who love reading books. It will help them share the books you love with other fans of lecture, probably fellow citizens of your same city/town.
There are 2 main functions you can do in the site:
1) You can share a book. You input the details of the book you want to share, and the location where this book is located. (It doesn't have to be your exact address. It can be any place you want. For instance, a local cafeteria. Any place where you can meet to do the exchange.
2) Find books: You can input your location on the map, and the website will show you what books are ready to be shared in a 10 km radius.
This is not a substitute for bookcrossing.com at all, since it does not have any community feature. It is a tool that can be used in combination, and I hope it would make easier the task of sharing your books.
The address is http://www.bookcaneer.com/
In the moment there are barely no books inside the database, since it just launched, but I would love if you guys would want to give it a try, and see if you think it could be a valuable tool.
I would love it if everyone would give it a look, and tell me what you think about it. I would love to hear some feedback.
I look forward to hear your opinions.
