If someone mentions they have a book they picked up for free from bookcrossing.com, take note of a great way to get hold of and read a book, and then pass it on. You never know if the person you pass it to will have a friend or family member visiting from overseas who might take it as a going away read when they leave.
At the last Gold Coast Writers meeting I picked up a copy of ‘Futureproof Your Kids’ by Fiona Lucas. I will read it and pass it on to my daughter in law to share with my son tips on how to help raise our grand daughters in a safe way in the ‘on line’ world.
Shared by her with another friend or teacher from my grand daughters school, the book may travel widely and be read by people who may not have bought it themselves. The possibilities are endless.
