Free Books

I've mentioned Book Crossing, a read and release program for books, before, but today I found out that there is a forum where you can sign up for different bookrings. A bookring is just like it sounds - someone reads a book, sends it to the next person on the list, and so on. So far I've already participated in three rings.

What this means is there are free books to read for the asking! The only requirement is that you leave a jounal entry about the book and send it to the next person. This would be perfect for anyone who doesn't have a lot of money to spend on books. The forum for bookrings can be found here.

If you're not already a member, feel free to use this link to sign up and don't forget to add me to your friends list!

That's neat. Almost like the library meets Netflix! :)
