This was precisely what I was going to do with a cookbook I got for free when buying another book last week. I was very excited about posting on this thread but you've beat me to it Foucault! :D

I released six at Luttwych (QLD). By the time I came out from voting (an absentee vote so it took a little longer than normal voting), all six were gone. I'm so worried they were binned. I've never had released bo…

I'll release some when I go to vote tommorrow. I figure since most polling booths are around schools in this area, I'll drop books that are suitable for teens as well as adults. That way if they don't get nabbed by …

Do what Anna Librarian suggested then tell your friends and family and encourage them to do the same or at least donate some of their unwanted books. Maybe see if you can start up an official book crossing zone - eg…

I'm thinking I'm going to have to make a few shirts with some slogans on the back/around/under the running book. I'll also do up some posters to put around my university campuses.

I have found that when releasing in particular locations, I'll consider the time of day as an important factor in ensuring my book ends up in loving hands. For example, When I release on public transport (buses, tra…

When I leave them at uni, I leave them in high-traffic areas such as computing labs and the refectory. I know that the cleaners only come through these two areas during pre-dawn hours or at 7 when the refec is close…

all of my drops bar one have been at universities and on buses/trains. I've had a fabulous catch rate - something like 7/30ish and 3 new BX members. Half of my catches have been at the uni half have been from the publ…

I've not been on BX for long in the greater scheme of things however I've already bought two copies of a book at the time of purchase with the specific intent to release the second copy. Seems to me that there are a…

I have with every book I've registered and released so far. My reasons are: 1) it makes older books look new and attractive to the eye. 2) it makes the books look more respectable and 'permanent' so hopefully they w…

I can remember releasing my first one. I did it within sight of my workstation and I kept nervously walking past it so I could check if it was gone yet. :D I've become a lot more bold these days, looking around at co…

I usually release in the computer labs at my university. I've had 4 successful journals this way. But then again, I've had 3 books journalled that I left in a uni cafeteria, bus stop and on a train.

I put one of the labels made by 'the bloody' on the inside of the front cover. Then I put a little sticker saying 'free book, look inside' on the spine (if it's wide enough). I've started putting a similar sticker on t…

I went to the lost and found department of my uni and asked if I could claim any books they had. I explained the bookcrossing concept but was firmly turned down. They send ALL the books they received (that don't get cla…
