...though never with the fervour that some people (including the dear friend who introduced me to the site) do.
Mostly I do “controlled releases” – that is, not entirely “into the wild,” but rather to a friend or acquaintance. Partly as a result, only once so far has a stranger made a journal entry on a book I released. And even that was only after my friend read it and re-released it.
Still, I love the concept, and plan to continue/resume releasing books more regularly, now that I’ve done the latest purge (a task that I knew would not be wise to delay pending my having the time and energy to register so many books).
