books in the wild

Bookcrossing – for people who read books and then release them into the wild. Has anyone done this before? I am tempted but it goes against my inner-librarian … It’s an American concept (of course!) but the Australian with the most books registered (454) and released (377) is a Peter Mackay from Canberra. I think he was the guy that released an entire set of encyclopaedias. Not much value in just getting volume Q but it makes for a funny story. I have just joined. My tidy-town-waste-not-want-not-you-can’t-throw-away-books voice is shouting loudly, but I’m going to ignore it.
