A Bit about BookCrossing

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.
