BookCrossing

The crossing zone..and this one is very nice

This is the official tag ..attached to the released book

Another example of a simple book crossing zone

The official sign for BookCrossing zone

My first encounter with the wording itself was through Pak Adib’s blog and straight away love the idea of releasing and capturing books that is not in one wanted list anymore. It’s another brilliant way to get more people to love and read books.

The idea started in 2002 and the current total number of members are reaching 800,000 and in Malaysia alone nearly 2500. I’ve completed my first book released last week in a shopping complex in Klang and will follow-up the progress of the book from www.bookcrossing.com.

One Utama has been supporting this idea all this while and they even established probably the first bookcrossing zone in Malaysia (jv with MPH Bookstore) and I was told that the zone was really ideal for book crosser to release and capture books.

Anyway , to at least experienced the excitement just click to the official website and register as a member . The next thing you know will be your addiction of releasing and capturing books while making new friends …


Happy BookCrossing
