If you click on the little yellow book in the sidebar,you will discover, as I just did, this excellent site called Bookcrossing. It exists to promote a novel way of encouraging people to read books. (Novel - books - get it? Oh well, please yourself!) The idea is that you join up and recommend a book you have read on the site and then leave it in a public place for someone else to pick up and read, in the hope that they too will pass it on in their turn. Seems like a good idea so I joined this morning. I only have one problem. Since I discovered the joys of writing and reading blogs, I have done appallingly little reading, so it looks as if I shall have to cut down on the blog-browsing and read more so that I will actually have a book to recommend!
