CEO's Corner: The Road to 4,000,000

June 22, 2007
BookCrossing members have now registered over 4,000,000 books since the site began just over 6 years ago. Think about that for a second. That’s over 55,000 books per month over a 6-year period that have been registered in over 130 countries worldwide…and I do mean worldwide. Some notable releases: the Statue of Liberty, the Great Wall of China, Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge, the Pyramids, the Arctic Circle and even Mt. Everest's base camp. I pass along many heartfelt thanks from the entire BookCrossing staff and the Support Team for your unyielding passion, dedication and love of BookCrossing.



The 4,000,000th book registered was The Judas Judge by Michael McGarrity, registered June 21, 2007 at 14:13:16 BookCrossing time by denny08. Wings on us for denny08 in celebration of the event! And congrats, too, to GoryDetails, who closed out the road to 4,000,000 books registered with her own special style: What's Your Poo Telling You?, by Josh Richman, Anish Sheth M.D.. It was the 3,999,999th book registered on the site.
