Ron: How about talking to Ebay about a category?

If people could crosslist to "Books: BookCrossing", that would be a great mechanism for bookcrossers to pass books on. I'd gladly pay shipping (and $0.01 or whatever the bidding went up to) for a book I want (that I could get cheaper locally), if I knew that I was keeping the chain unbroken. Also, selling on ebay, you'd have to mention the bookplate and maybe have a link to the site, so even if people don't buy, they might be interested and follow the link and maybe sign up. It seems that people looking for books online want a bargain and would be very open to the idea of making the world into a library.

Not much profit in it for eBay, since they take a percentage of the sale price....

No, but maybe they'd like to do a corporate good work.
