Although I'm finding I'm not Bookcrossing so much, since I was given the surprise present of a Kindle, I do still pass on books and attend meet ups from time to time. I am really glad I found the site and have made some good friends through Bookcrossing - something completely unexpected when I started to label and leave my books as I travelled.
In February 2008 I read an article about Bookcrossing in the Telegraph or the Guardian. I told my cousin about it and we both signed up here. A few months later I decided to delete my details as I hadn't used the site at all. During the summer, while travelling on a round the world ticket trip, I was leaving books in hostels and in book exchanges as usual and realised I should use Bookcrossing to see where they might end up. I rejoined in August and the first book I left, in a book exchange in Queenstown, NZ, was journalled.
My bookshelf doesn't completely reflect my reading tastes; it's also a hotch potch of books I've been given to pass on and others I've picked up to fulfil wishes.
