Send Your Book on An Adventure!

Filed under: Author Tips,Book Promotion,Promotion — Larry James @ 10:30 am

Register books that you want to give away, put downloaded labels inside and leave the giveaways in a coffee shop or other public place.

Whoever takes a book can fill out an online form so that you can track the book’s travels and follow where it goes next.

BookCrossing is the act of releasing your books “into the wild” for a stranger to find, or via “controlled release” to another BookCrossing member, and tracking where they go via journal entries from around the world.

Their community of passionate, generous book-lovers is changing the world and touching lives, one traveling book at a time. Register your book for FREE, and get a unique BookCrossing ID.

This BCID allows you to follow your specific book wherever it goes. Think of it as a passport enabling your book to travel the world without getting lost!

Once you’ve labeled your book, it’s ready to travel the world. There are a few different ways you can share your book:

Give it away. Pass your book on to a friend, a stranger, a strange friend, or a friendly stranger!

Release it into the wild. Referred to as the “wild release” (and loved by so many BookCrossers), this type of sharing is a bit like nudging a baby bird out of the nest or sending your kid off to college. Your book doesn’t want to spend its life on your shelf gathering dust; it wants to get out there and touch lives!

Leave your labeled book on a park bench on a summer day, in a train station, on the table in your favorite coffee shop — anywhere it’s likely to be caught by another delighted reader. Then go back to BookCrossing.com and read about your book’s new adventures! See where in the world your book goes, and who reads it!

At the time of this writing, over 850,000 active BookCrossers have collectively registered almost seven million books which are traveling around 130 countries! Imagine the world of opportunities for your book once you’ve labeled and shared it. Get started today!  Go to: BookCrossing.com.
