Extended Profile

In the last four years I have been researching a series of case studies for a doctoral thesis. This included a case study on the experiences of being part of the Bookcrossing communities, with the experiences of people in Australia, UK, Germany and Israel all collected to explore how the use of the website affects the relationship between reader and book.
This project has concluded with a PhD thesis being accepted earlier this month.

Thank you to all of you who have supported by research process, including anyone who has contributed their time and opinions, whether in a formal interview, or in a less formal conversation across a release table at a convention. I hope to develop this material into a series of journal articles and I will share details of these here.

Thanks again,

Russell Glasson (formerly Pearce)
