Traveling Books

I have some books that I don’t really have any need to keep around. My friends that might be interested in reading them have already read them. Quite a few years ago, a friend passed along a book (Feast of All Saints by Anne Rice) that she found on the bus. To this day, it remains one of my favorites of all the Anne Rice books. In fact, if I’m remembering correctly, it was my first Anne Rice book.

So as a fun little, pay it forward kind of project, I thought I’d drop of my extra books at Los Angeles Airport on my way out of town tomorrow. My hope is that someone will pick them up and enjoy them.

I’ve affixed labels inside the covers asking that if anyone finds the books to come hereo come here and leave a comment. I thought it might be a fun little social experiment.

With that, I say hello to my new readers. Please take a moment to leave a comment and let me know which book you have and where you found it. I do hope you’ve enjoyed your book and have passed it along.

Happy & Safe Travels! 😉

ETA: The hubs won’t let me leave the books in the actual airport. You know, Homeland Security and all that. So instead I’ll leave one or two in the parking lot/shuttle, maybe one or two on the plane and then wherever in NJ when I get there. Yes, I’ll lug around 7 books just so I can leave them somewhere for someone else to find and enjoy. I’m just crazy like that 😀

    Awesome! Reminds me some of the “Where’s George?” phenomenon, where someone wrote down a web address and you could track where your $1.00 bill had traveled before it arrived in your hands. It’s pretty sweet.

    Floridina – Welcome!  I was thinking of Book Crossing when I decided to do it.  I just figured that I’d tie it back to my blog – who knows, I might get a couple new readers 😉

    Phil – I’ve had those bills before.  Sadly, I never got around to logging it.  I figure a book stays in your hands a bit longer than a dollar so someone might actually take a moment and leave a comment.
