As I have mentioned previously, I am now a member of postcrossing.com, which is a similar concept as bookcrossing.com (which shares books).  Postcrossing allows the sending and receiving of postcards from around the world.  Since I wanted the widest possible distribution of postcards for...

In November, I really slacked off in regards to my New Year's resolution of putting more steps on my pedometer.  To be honest, it was my worst month all year (except for January when I lost my pedometer on the tarmac in Nairobi, Kenya and I had no way to keep track).  This pedometer geek...

As I have often mentioned, I spend a great deal of time bookcrossing (giving and sharing books around the world with others, particularly other bookcrossers).  Through bookcrossing.com, I recently learned about the postcrossing.com site. Because many bookcrossers tend to send postcards to each...

I am a member of two book groups (if I don't include online book groups like bookcrossing.com and Goodreads.com).  The first one is library-based and anyone is welcome, and the other is by-invitation-only.  I must have passed their scrutiny at the meeting I attended because after a vote...

As I have mentioned numerous times before, I am an avid bookcrosser and participate in various bookcrossing activities. Some of these activities include book-rings and book-rays, rabcks*, book boxes (physical and virtual), and book challenges.  The one in particular that I am referring to this...

As a bookcrosser at www.bookcrossing.com, I learned about WBN (World Book Night) from a posting on a thread.  World Book Night is a movement to get more people reading; I believe WBN is in its second year of distribution of books.  This program is a way to get books into the hands of the...

I often talk about www.bookcrossing.com on my blog posts.  It is a international website community that shares books.  They also have a newsletter about bookcrossing experiences and events that bring greater knowledge about bookcrossing.  The following is an article I wrote about one...
