I love this passage from Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruis Zafon. I think it sums up bookcrossing perfectly:
"Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens."

I read every day, mostly over breakfast, lunch and at bedtime. I am always just 'popping in' to charity shops to look for books and get a lot of books as gifts for Christmas, birthdays, etc.
I've always loved books but even more so since joining bookcrossing. I've had the opportunity to read books I would never have dreamed of trying before and have enjoyed them very much.
