Do you like to interact with your community? Of course you do – that’s why you’re here!
I bet you’ve heard of geocaching. Maybe you like the idea, but aren’t quite that ambitious. Or maybe you’ve checked out Craigslist or Freecycle. But my favorite is BookCrossing.
If you like to read, give BookCrossing a try! At bookcrossing.com you’ll find that the original intent was for members to leave books “released into the wild” to be found by potential new members. The idea has been expanded to include trades with friends, bookrings, RABCKs, and lots more.
The easiest way for you to get into it right now is to go to Keva Juice on south Carson Street and check out the bright yellow box on the bench. That’s my OBCZ, or official bookcrossing zone. Check out the current offerings, and take one, or a few, home. Look inside a book, find the BCID (bookcrossing identification number) and let all the previous readers know that you found it. Then read, and Release!
