I saw a wild book in the local hospital once, but a young boy had already captured it! While BookCrossing is more about the giving for me, I would really like to ‘catch’ a book in the wild at least once in my lifetime. 4 years ago

But again, I didn’t “catch” it in the wild. It came in another grab bag auction of books and I’ve got it queued up as my next read so I can keep it moving. I’m going to leave this goal, as it really is about finding a book in the wild. 5 years ago
A bookcrossing.com book was in a “grab bag” type box of books I won on eBay. I will read it this coming weekend probably and then release it. Bookcrossing.com considers this a found book rather than a caught book because it was mailed to me instead of me finding it out in “the wild.” So, I’ll leave this goal on the list for now and keep looking for a book in the wild. 5 years ago
Well I joined BookCrossing.com and I registered my first 3 books. This weekend, I finished reading the first of the three and as soon as I get my labels, it’s going to be my first release! Not too many books released here in southern Idaho, so this one might be a challenge but I’m up for it! 5 years ago
I do NOT need more books on my shelves—especially books I don’t want to read. I am going to send out my own books. So if you are in my area prepare to get a lot of books. I’m not giving up the goal.. just changing it 5 years ago
Wow. Not only am I going to try to catch a book just for fun, I think I may release a ton. What a neat site! 5 years ago
it was cool.When i found the book i had never heard of book crossing, but i have an account and im always keeping an eye out for bookcrossing books! 5 years ago
Of course, the funniest way to catch a book is just to happen to find it by accident. However, if you join BookCrossing you have better possibilities to find a book. As a member you can have so called release alerts to your email address, and go hunting for books. :)
Non-members can also browse “go hunting” section at the BookCrossing page, but they can’t get alerts straight to their mailboxes. 7 years ago
but I didn’t know what it was so I left it there. Duh!
Next time I find one, I’ll make sure I log on to the website and let people know where it is! :-) 7 years ago
