Books with passports

Courtesy of BookCrossing, Inc.As our move to Canada approaches, I find myself yet again getting rid of a bunch of pointless possessions. Among the piles are some books.

Rather than just sell these or give them away and be done with it, I’m going to try a little experiment using a tool I recently discovered: bookcrossing.com. The idea is simple: you print out a label from their Website with a unique code on it, slap it in a book, and set the book loose upon the world. Anyone who picks up the book can go to the site, enter the code, and share where and when they picked up the book.

Simple, fun, and just right for a bibliophile, well, at least for the kind that can occasionally give up a book.
