Read and Release a Book

BookCrossing: n. the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise. (added to the Concise Oxford English Dictionary in August 2004)

I heard about this site and concept years ago, but remembered it over the holidays, during a conversation with my son and his friend, both avid readers and earth-friendly travelers. They are bicycling through Mexico, reading and releasing books. Now they know about this site and can spread the word. Check out the website at to read more about setting books free.
