Although I'm finding I'm not Bookcrossing so much, since I was given the surprise present of a Kindle, plus I use my public libraries regularly, 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.

March 2016

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.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
