Whenever I think of the film Amelie, I am immediately reminded of the little garden gnome that packed up his rucksack and traveled ’round the world (a phenomenon in existence prior to the said movie making it famous). If you loved the liberation of the homely gnome, you will be very charmed by the setting free of your favourite books. As the explanation at bookcrossing.com says:
… you can register any book you have on the site, and then set the book free to travel the world and find new readers.
I just love this idea; it combines the fun of seeing where physical objects travel to (as in WheresGeorge.com) with the satisfaction of sharing a new book.
Now all I must do is decide what book to pack up and send out into the world… What would you choose?
