There's another one, too:

One way to share Bookcrossing via Facebook is to put the Bookcrossing Facebook application on your Facebook profile.
Here's the link http://apps.facebook.com/bcqdapp/ or http://www.facebook.com/---/application.php?...

The app has a feature where your Facebook friends who are also members of Bookcrossing are listed in the app's box.

There is also a growing number of Facebook groups started by BCers specific to their geographic location. Search Facebook for Bookcrossing + (name of city/state/country).
