The best things in life are books, Earl Grey tea, and family. And you also can't forget Girl Scout cookies. Books, tea and peanut butter patties all go very well together. But if the chocolate melts, don't get the book messy.

This morning I got up really early and came downstairs. I turned on the TV, took out a book, and started up the computer. I read while watching TV while checking up on things on BookCrossing. Multitasking sure comes in handy sometimes.

This is the book crossing web site I was talking about in XQs. I stopped it for a few years while I used a kindle, then got lazy and just left books lying around. This is much more fun.

I hope that somebody creates a giant library in paradise with every book ever written and plenty of cats to pet while you read. Dogs like to run around, so cats are perfect for that job. I think that books are the best things to happen to mankind. Also I think the BookCrossing motto should be " One small carry for a book, one giant travel for bookkind. "

What's your favorite subject? Mine is Latin, but I also like any tests in any subjects because once I have finished them, I can read to my heart's content. On average, I read about an hour and a half every day. I even have a shirt that says that I will read everywhere. Which is definitely true.

Don't know if you've already looked at this site, but it's pretty cool. There's one place in Antwerp - I'm going to check it out.

Hey I'm a Bookcrosser from North Yorkshire, England UK. I thought you'd be interested learning about Bookcrossing.com Some of you might have even seen my books lying around. (in the case of the poor neighbours!)

Graziella Massi 4 febbraio 2017 Condividi | «Mettiamo i libri in mano a chi li ama». In questa frase, c´è tutta la filosofia del BookCrossing per il medico Mario Figoni, promotore, realizzatore e coordinatore dell´attività L´Alguer llibres llures: insolito esperimento di sociologia mondiale ALGHERO - «Mettiamo i libri in mano a chi li ama». Con questa breve risposta che contiene la filosofia del BookCrossing, inizia l'intervista a Mario Figoni, di professione medico, attività svolta principalmente in Africa per studiare e combattere le malattie infettive, ma anche promotore, realizzatore e coordinatore di “L'Alguer llibres llures”. Così Mario ne sintetizza l'attività: «liberare libri affinché ognuno possa gratuitamente leggerli per poi tenerli o immetterli nuovamente nel circuito a disposizione di altri lettori». «Tutto ebbe inizio nel reparto malattie infettive dell'Ospedale Cotugno di Napoli dove ho lavorato come medico specialista per alcuni anni e - continua a raccontare - in collaborazione con l'Onlus Compagni di Viaggio, pensammo di stabilire un punto di raccolta libri per mettere a disposizione dei malati di Aids uno strumento capace di alleviare la loro solitudine nelle lunghe giornate in ospedale, una volta finiti gli impegni con i medici e le visite dei parenti». Carico di entusiasmo per il successo dell'iniziativa, trasferitosi ad Alghero, Mario pensa di organizzare qui una rete di BookCrossing che coinvolga l'intera area. Con orgoglio fornisce cifre che parlano da sole: in appena sei mesi di attività, sono tredici le postazioni in città (bar, lavanderie a gettone, B&B, alberghi, ed altre realtà aperte al pubblico), due quelle estive (Porto Ferro e Villaggio Nuragico Palmavera) e tre quelle a Sassari che hanno scelto di far parte del circuito algherese, per un totale di 3.500 libri “liberati” catalogati e seguiti telematicamente con estrema precisione da Mario nei vari passaggi da un lettore all'altro. «"Metti un libro letto, prendi un libro da leggere” è il nostro slogan che appare anche nei cartelli presenti nelle varie postazioni; chiunque può immettersi nel circuito come donatore o fruitore del servizio completamente gratuito attraverso la nostra pagina Facebook: “Alghero Bookcrossing.network”». L'Alguer llibres llures è collegato con la rete mondiale di BookCrossing presente in molti paesi ed è anche inserita su GoogleMaps. Un calcolo appena aggiornato da la cifra di 14.327.586 libri “liberati” che continuano a circolare nel pianeta passando di mano in mano: Il mondo come una grande biblioteca.

Beste mede-boekliefhebber, Ik heb vandaag deze heerlijke book-hunt ontdekt, bookcrossing, waar men zijn gelezen boeken de wildernis in laat en jouw geliefde boek de kans krijgt om de wereld rond te reizen. Prachtig idee toch? Jammer genoeg zijn de West-Vlamingen dat niet met me eens... Er zijn geen wilde boeken in mijn streek om naar op zoek te gaan! Hoe zielig! Omdat ik dit een prachtig idee vind en zelf ook wel eens op boekenjacht wil gaan, stuur ik je dit bericht, en ik hoop dat jij je ook bij de bookcrossing familie zult voegen! Veel vang- en leesplezier!
