Eirik, then Jill wrote about BookCrossing.Com... This is an incredibly good idea: when you've read your books, you label them with a bookcrossing-label and release them; either by leaving them at a cafe; giving them to a fellow traveller/friend/colleague/etc (you get the picture), or, as Eirik suggests in his post: he has a book basket in his home where he leaves books for guests to take with them when they leave.

... now if getting those labels properly printed had been a tad easier, I have a continuously growing stack of paperbacks from my travels I guess I could easily release in a similar fashion (currently I occationally "lend books out" more or less permanently to friends anyway -- labelling them would make the lender pass them on and would relieve anyone from nagging guilt over not returning the books...).

Note to self: Must consider this. Must look into getting those Avery labels & print some tags...
