I’ve been a long time fan of Bookcrossing.com ever since it began. The concept is simple — leave a book you no longer want on a park bench, a coffee shop, at a hotel on vacation. Anywhere it might find a new reader. Log on to the web site, and track the book’s journey around the world as it is passed on from person to person.
So last week when a well-worn copy of The Empire Strikes Back novel was left at the Lucasfilm lobby, in our San Francisco Presidio campus, I couldn’t help but smile. There smack dab on the front cover was a Bookcrossing.com sticker. I’ll be leaving it in the lobby again today to see who picks it up next. You can track its journey here.
May the Force be with this beloved paperback, wherever it ends up.
