I just adore BookCrossing! When I first found out about it I could hardly stop myself from releasing everything I had on my shelves. Then I went through a stage of buying books specially for release, not really reading them properly at all. Now I am a bit more circumspect; I realise that lots of books will never be journalled (a pity we don't have some sort of electronic tagging), and if I am really fond of them it is probably a good idea to have 2 copies, one to keep and one to travel. I haven't done this yet but this might be the next stage I will go through. At the moment I am reading a new book by Coetzee, the Nobel Prize winner, and it is tough going, so this one might be in the wild quite soon.
