I’m going to start tagging every used book I read with Book Crossing codes. Book Crossing is a cool website that tracks the book once it’s tagged. You put that code in the website and post journal entries before you share the book with the next reader.
The first book I tagged is The Grass Crown by Colleen McCullough. It’s 1200 pages so I won’t finish it for a week or two. You can see my first journal entry in the link above. I’ll donate it to the Boynton Beach city library when I’m done with it, they have a cool used book section that has been good to me.
All you do to put the code in is write a little instruction with the website URL with the code as a slash at the end and you can maybe find out some cool things from people who read your books as it travels around the world.
I encourage everyone with a collection to tag their books or at least make some mark as readers across generations pick them up.
