This is quite a new hobby and it's free and also eco-friendly! It's the practice of leaving a book, that you enjoyed reading, in a public place look at, Cats for others to pick up and enjoy reading too. Then that person does the same and so the book is passed on and on. It's like a mixture of treasure hunt and participating in a global also see, Canon Digital Camera Review library.

The term “BookCrossing” was started in 2001 by Ron Hornbaker. He conceived the idea and then started a website which took off very quickly and became popular worldwide. , Acutomancy By 2004 the word “BookCrossing” was even included in the Oxford English Dictionary.

The idea is that if you have a book to share; you register yourself checkout, Dora Doll House on the website. Then other members go “hunting” and look on the website at the list of books that have recently been left somewhere or “released”. They go to the place also look at, Cats the book was left to “catch” it. If it's still there and they find it they enter its identification number on the website to register the catch and find out where and who it came from.
