I can identify with the person who once said "Give me a book, any book. I don't care what it is." This condition was beautifully described in the following way: "Someone infected me, long ago," she said, "with a virus that made me love books. I hope they never find a cure." I could not have said it better and wish those were my words - I am however more 'picky' when it comes to the books that I read. I read about Bookcrossing in a popular, local South African magazine. My first English book ever was "Jamaica Inn", by Daphne Du Maurier and I still thank the wonderful, extrovert, blonde, Grade eight teacher who introduced this author to our Afrikaans class.
