More Peer to Peer Booksharing

Many of you already know about Booklend, Mark Anderson's free online lending library. Well, today I read an interesting SFGate article about BookCrossing, which I heartily recommend that you check out!

The idea is to share books, for free, with complete strangers. But the people who are doing it are treating the sharing like an art form. Books are left in intriguing places, with numbered labels on them describing the project. Readers can go to the website and update the current locations of books.

BookCrossing has been operating for a while now, but I just heard about it, so I decided to spread the word. By the way, I heard about it on Slashdot.
