After beeing a passive member for a while, I started a new Book Crossing Zone at my workingplace (in Oslo, Norway), a bookshelf in the hall outside our office, where many people pass by daily. I hope this will help many books to find new readers. Both co-workers and customers bring me books to register.

I often attend the monthly BookCrossing meet-up in Oslo, where we are quite an active group. I have been to several international BookCrossing Conventions, which I enjoyed greatly, and I was part of the committee that arranged the BookCrossing Convention in Oslo in 2017.

BookCrossing has made me overcome some predjudices, for instance I never used to read books in Swedish and Danish, and I get inspiration to read books by authors i never heard of before.

I have started to read books from the list of "1001 books you must read before you die", but I am unsure about whether I ought to finish the project or not. As one of my BookCrossers friends put it - If you read 100 books a year, it will take 10 years to get through the list. But there are so many other books that are not on the list that I would like to read, so it would probably take 20 years to get through. And in the meantime - so many more new books to catch my interest! But I can use the list as an inspiration to expand my reading.
