I love books and reading. I can spend hours browsing the shelves of bookshops, libraries and book-fairs. I especially love secondhand bookshops and I often wonder about the lives the books in these places had before I found them.
I buy way more books than I read, the Japanese have a word "tsundoku" which means someone who keeps buying books, even though they already have huge stacks of unread books at home. So I think Bookcrossing is a great idea to release the books I have read out to other readers to enjoy and free up some space for me for more books. My favourite quote about books. "If you have a garden and a library you have everything you need" by Marcus Tullius Cicero
