I read more than anyone else I know. Sometimes I feel like I bug people by recommending books to them so often. One of the reasons I was delighted to discover Book Crossing (I learned about it from a friendly check out clerk at a grocery store) was because it gives me an avenue to share books.

(I also worry about books I've released-- will they be found and read, or will they fall into hostile hands?) Lately I've been indulging in an esoteric flight of fancy that releasing books is a suitable atonement for all the library books I keep until they are overdue: I'm banking good book karma! Now if only the library system would buy this theory and let me off of the fines I've accrued, I could buy some more books!
