Get--and give--free books

My friend Naomi (hi, Naomi!) recently turned me on to BookCrossing. It's a non-profit endeavor designed to help spread the joy of reading. The basic idea is that people give books away and then track their progress around the world. I have registered several books that I will be "releasing into the wild" this weekend. Each book has a BCID that I've printed on a lable inside the front cover. I've written a little journal entry for each book, and then, as people find the books, hopefully they will read them, post their own journal entry, and then re-release them.

It serves several thrifty purposes, including two of my most favorite: free entertainment and clutter-clearing.
