Books, BookCrossing & Me:
So what is it about BookCrossing I enjoy so much? There are so many bits and pieces:
I love the book club aspect of book rings, the altruistic facet of wild releases, the sharing part of RABCKS and trades, and of course the community feeling of the forums.
One of the joys of BookCrossing has been the introduction to authors and book titles I might have otherwise left untried.
