I love it. These would be a perfect way to make easily-accessible bookcrossing zones!

neeuqfonafamai: I thought the same thing about bookcrossing! Especially good for rainy places like Portland, where I am.

Tea: It is adorable, isn't it?

Chelseroo: I think so too!

RCR, what's bookcrossing? (Interested to know how to integrate LFLs into new environments).

JaneGS: I hope the idea catches on -- I love it!

mulligansoup: Bookcrossing is a book sharing thingy that's like a cross between pay-it-forward and that not very popular "Where's George?" dollar bill tracer. The idea is to give away your books when you finish them, but participants put a sticker in the book with a unique identifying number in it and log into the Bookcrossing website (http://www.bookcrossing.com/) to say where they left the book. The person who finds it logs in and claims the book. That is the part of it that I tried. There are other ways people use it -- by having bookcrossing gatherings to exchange books, etc.
