About BookCrossing ~ The World's Library

"A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold." Henry Miller, The Books In My Life (1969)
BookCrossing is the World's Library. "It's a smart social networking site. It's a celebration of literature and a place where books get new life. BookCrossing is the act of giving a book a unique identity so, as the book is passed from reader to reader, it can be tracked and thus connecting its readers."

You won't be disappointed when you visit the website, but you may be astounded when you read the current number of users, books circulating, and the number of countries it serves.

What is the Mission of BookCrossing? 
"Very simply, we aim to connect people through books," says the owner.
