I am OBSESSED with Little Free Libraries! They solve my dilemma about finding safe public places to leave Bookcrossing books! So far I have visited 569 different LFLs and I'm always on the hunt for more. To see an interactive google map of all the libraries I have visited so far, click here. For detailed information about Bay Area LFLs, check out my website!



Some basic info:
For anyone trying to cut down on shipping costs, media mail costs $2.61 for the first pound and an additional .48 for the second pound! More info is available here and here.

Most of the books on my TBR list are books that I have bought for myself or were given to me as gifts. I usually read BC books within a week of receiving them so that I can keep them moving. I am open to trading books that are listed as available, most of which are purchased second hand with the intent of being released in the wild.

About my numbers: only books which are released into the wild are listed as wild releases. Any books which are traded, part of rings/rays, or given to other people (regardless of method) are journaled but are not listed as wild releases. To date, I have released 85 books into the wild, 7 of which have been caught. I have hunted and caught one book that was released in the wild. The rest of my caught/found numbers are trades, rings/rays, or RABCKs.

Some great bookring/bookray resources:

  • the awesome ring/ray site set up by mrsordonez
  • the solution for peace in the BC forums by fsr44
  • Lost Book Island
  • earthdance's list of ring/ray stallers
