    That's a neat site. I was just wondering tonight what to do with all the books I read. I usually give them to family or friends.

    I only keep my Harry Potter and Nicholas Sparks books. I let the rest go. I used to keep them all, but the numbers were getting out of hand

    I have been a bookcrosser for years. I never let books I love go, but I tend to buy paperbacks from used bookstores and if they are just OK, I let them go. I set up an official bookcrossing zone in my library, and people in my town release their books at the library. It's pretty cool.

    I keep only the books I really like, my classics, educational ones, leatherbound and antique. I only by large paperback or hard cover because they are nicer. I buy mostly used though.

    I just got that book the other day. Is it really good? I also got one called My Sisters Keeper I just started reading it lastnight. It is really good so far.

    As for the book crossing thing I like it I think I may have to do that.
