My interest in Bookcrossing was sparked by an article entitled " Word wide web. If you're visiting the Taj Mahal - or your local High Street - and spot a lonely book, pick it up, says Tom Rawstorne, you never know what you might discover."

He wrote about his hunt for a book on a wet Thursday in Maidstone, Kent that had been left somewhere in the High Street, the thrill of spotting the book and what bookcrossing was all about. The bit that made me go wow was when he described how a book left on the summit of East Mount Lothian (2,048 Ft) in Wanlockhead in Dumfries and Galloway one August afternoon in 2003 was later released in September 2003 on the summit on Uhuru Peak, Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The book was found a couple of years later and given to a German physician spending a voluntary year in a hospital in Tanzania. It was given to him by a patient as a reward for helping her.

It would be terrific if one of my "travellers" found their way to an exotic location overseas.
