BookCrossing may be confusing to some new members but you can get off to a better start if you look under Information and read FAQ's and How to BookCross. I've been a member several years and sometimes I still have to go back and review questions and answers in the FAQ's. You'll figure out things one at a time and after a while you'll feel quite comfortable. And, you can always ask questions in the Newbie's Forum.

To get started you need to get some books on your Bookshelf. It doesn't matter if you've read them or not. They should be books that you can mark Available rather then To Be Read, etc. Other BookCrossers will see your books and may find one they'd like to trade for one of their books. These trades often involve mailing costs but it could be a simple hand off to a friend.

Starting a WishList lets others know the names of some of the books you'd like to have and you can look through their WishList to find out what they're looking for as well. Sometimes members send books as a RABCK (Random Act of BookCrossing Kindness.) It means they're gifting the book to you and aren't asking for one in exchange.

BookCrossing is a group that you can spend lots of time with or maybe, if preferred only a little time. Sharing our book and having fun are the keys.

Although many of us make wild releases, and don't do trades. Either is fine, but I don't want you to think you have to mail out trades to people if you'd rather wild release in your local area. That's what I do. Or you can do both. It's up to you. It is also up to you whether you put books that are To Be Read on your shelf or not.

This is an excellent strategy. I'm wishing you good luck and lots of fun!

To do wild releases, you really don't need to know other BookCrossers. You can inspire them to join by releasing books and the people who find them may be so delighted with their finds that they will join too. Best of luck.

I would spend some time around the site, checking the various forums and also the tabs on the top bar, like the Go Hunting pages, the Bookplate Galleries, the FAQ etc. It helps to get a grasp on how things work with BookCrossing...

Enjoy it here and stay with us : )
