Crossings

Just thought I’d mention two interesting net-movements I’ve signed up for recently.

One is BookCrossing.com, which involves reading a book, registering it on the website and then “releasing” it, which means you just leave it in a public place for anybody to pick and take away, or give it away to someone. I thought it was a cool idea, and first heard of it from a friend’s signature on Crochetlist.

The other is a phenomenon in its infancy, PostCrossing.com and is basically a list of people who send each other postcards from all over the world. Sort of like penfriends, except, whether you continue corresponding or not depends entirely on you. I heard of this from Barbara aka Nashville Crocheter.

  1. I know both sites and love them!
    I´ve sent 2 books to the world already! Sadly never found one yet sniffff!
    And the postcards site is very cute! I love sending anonymous postcards 🙂

  2. Thanks for the link about PostCrossing.com. I signed up and have 3 cards to mail out soon. I think it’s a great idea and look forward to hearing from others as well as sending to new people.
