UGR Bookcrossing

image The Bookcrossing initiative began in 2001 in the U.S. In essence, it is a global book club that crosses time and space. It has no geographical limits. It is the practice of leaving books in public places so that others can pick them up, read them, and repeat the process. The idea is to allow books to travel freely across the globe, thus extending the traditional definitions of the word ‘library’. Via the UGR´s Bookcrossing webpage, you can track your book´s journey across the world. To find out more about Bookcrossings at the UGR:
