While thumbing through a battered Reader’s Digest at the optometrist’s one summer day in 2003, I found a brief, intriguing article about Bookcrossing. Who would have known that brief article would have created a monster…ever since that then I’ve been hooked! I love the thrill of releasing books in the wild, and I've enjoyed organizing and participating in bookrays/rings with other BookCrossers. It's encouraging me to take more time to read, and to read a wider variety of books that I may not have considered before.

Several years ago I stumbled across the most adorable "Little Free Library" around the corner from our cottage while on a family vacation on Maine's Mount Desert Island. Once home I looked it up online, and discovered the Little Free Library movement. I spent the fall and winter planning and scheming, and by the following summer our very own Little Free Library was ready to open. While I no longer participate in bookrings/rays, I've merged my love of Bookcrossing and setting books free with my new "job" as a Little Free Library steward.

If you discover one of my previously released books, whether through a ring/ray, a wild release, an Official Bookcrossing Zone, or a Little Free Library, know that I'll be beyond excited to hear where that book wound up and where it may travel next! I still get a little thrill every time I find an update in my inbox about a book I had freed long ago!
