> serendipity of finding a book or knowing
> that someone has found the book I left is
> a delightful and marvelous feeling.
Thats it in a nutshell for me. I have a lot of books, primarily sci fi, cause thats what I like, and bookcrossing is a neat way for me to share that passion with other people. And I like the feeling of knowing that my book found its way into the hands of someone who perhaps read it, or gave it to someone they know who would. I just bought some bookplates and cover sticky notes to get my catch rate up since the two books I've released thus far have not been caught. But sharing books this way is wonderful, and I know it can promote sales because when I visit the book crossing site and see the books that have been released in different places, you've got those book seller links right there, cuz the book may look interesting to read, but the chances of me picking it up in a crossing zone are probably nil, so if I want it, I gotta buy it. Book crossing is cool, and I'm going to add a link to them on my war blog at http://www.mybottomline.blogspot.com.
