Different cover to that shown.

from amazon;
He was dragged from the sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues: a frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the skin of his hip; evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face; strange things he says in his delirium, which could be code words. And a number on the film negative that leads to a bank account in Zurich, four million dollars, and a name for the amnesiac: Jason Bourne. Now he is running for his life. A man with an unknown past and an uncertain future, the target of assassins and at the heart of a deadly puzzle. He's fighting for survival and no one can help him - except the one woman who once wanted to escape him ...

I had popped into the Post Office in North Camp, an area of Farnborough, to post some seeds and postcards to friends and was walking home along Somerset Road, when I saw a book that seemed to be telling me it wanted to be picked up.

It was a lovely warm sunny day, third in a row of such lovely spring, almost summer days, and now at around 5-30pm on late Wednesday afternoon 28 March 2007, it was starting to cool off.

I picked up the book, and saw that it was a Book Crossing book.

I had vaguely heard of Book Crossing, either on the radio, maybe BBC Radio 4 Book Programme, or maybe I had read of it somewhere.

Never one to pass up on a free book, I picked the book up and took it home.

The book was The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum.

I wanted something to read to while away the hours, and a book drops into my hands!

I knew The Bourne Identity was a film, but did not know it was also a novel, even less that it was written by Robert Ludlum. A friend once mentioned the film, but it all sounded pretty boring, and the friend he was telling was even less interested.

I will read the novel, although not yet, and when I have finished it, will pass it on as holiday reading, and ask that it be then released in the wild.

More on its travels soon ....

Book Crossing is an interesting idea, and I may be releasing some myself.

I already do this, but not by releasing in the wild, but by passing on to interested parties.

I go further still, and have established a web site of books worth reading.

Finding the book was an example of synchronicity.

I was wanting a book to read, a little light reading, and one such book drops into my life.

The subject was what a friend had mentioned in discussion with another friend.

On the day I found the book, Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh lost their case at the Court of Appeal, with the claim that Dan Brown in writing the Da Vinci Code had plagiarised their ideas.

Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code, and the rather odd court case that made no sense, had recently cropped up in discussion with another friend.

I was sufficiently impressed on finding a free book and the concept of BookCrossing that I have written an article on BookCrossing

For my lovely Russian friend Alissa.

We met,and as you was leaving I gave you this book.

I thought I would never hear from you again.

How pleased I was when some months later, you somehow tracked me down through the book or through book crossing.

Very pleased you did, and we have been friends ever since.

But now I do not know how to contact you.

I thought maybe as you did, through book crossing, but cannot see how.

Maybe this message on the book with reach you.

But that of course assumes you still have the same e-mail address.

You had, until a few weeks back, now it bounces back.

I can but hope.

I cannot watch the film The Bourne Identity without thinking of that lovely Russian girl I met.
