Do You Ever Wonder Where Your Books Travel to After You Pass Them On?

I've always wondered where my books will travel to after I've passed them along to another reader. I've also wondered what other readers have thought about the book too... Did they like reading the book as much as me or not?

Well, through Bookcrossing, I've been able to see where my books have traveled to and what readers have thought about the book as well. For instance, I read The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler, then registered the book on Bookcrossing, placed a special label on the inside of the book with a tracking number and passed the book along to another reader. And that's where the magic of Bookcrossing begins!!

So far, twelve people have read my copy of The Vagina Monologues!! It has traveled around the USA, four countries in Europe, and is now currently in Australia, where it will be traveling around Australia and New Zealand before heading back to the USA and Canada... Amazing!! The average overall rating of The Vagina Monologues by the readers is 8 stars out of 10 stars. Pretty exciting news if you ask me. 

I've also had similar experiences with other books I've read through Bookcrossing as well.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. I always think this is really interesting! I would love to jump in this program but since I get all my books from the library I pretty much know where they will go next. :)

  2. I wasn't aware of Bookcrossing. It sounds like a really great concept! It is interesting to see how books can connect us all. Thanks for visiting me @ The Key to the Gate. I too am looking forward to watching the film version of The Giver and seeing how it compares to the book.
    Happy Reading!
