Two new books showed up in the Little Free Library bearing BookCrossing Labels last night. I registered them and released them back into the wild.
If you find them, please take a moment to log them into BookCrossing so folks can see where they travel.
Several years ago, my mom found a book with a curious label in it. The label said it was a “BookCrossing” book. My mom doesn’t have a computer, so I registered the book and I was off and running. I think this idea is so cool.
Each book has a unique BCID (BookCrossing ID). By entering that number at http://www.bookcrossing.com/ you can see where the book has been – and then you can track where it goes. If you’re familiar with Where’s George? for dollar bills, this is similar.
Many other Little Free Libraries are connected with BookCrossing and I thought it would be fun to have my Greenbriar Little Free Library #33664 play along, too.
In addition to randomly finding books, you can also go hunting for them at http://www.bookcrossing.com/hunt
This video is a great short explanation:
The Greenbriar Little Free Library #33664 is an official BookCrossing Zone.
