Go to http://www.bookcrossing.com and have a look at this unique system. If you are like me, and have tons of extra books but don't necessarily want to sell them, why not consider "releasing them" at coffee shops, airports, and the like. I have frequently done this, with no idea as to where the books went after that. BookCrossing picks up from that, and let you "register" your book with a printable book plate before you "release" it. Once you release it, you enter "release notes" at the website, and whoever finds the book can pick it up again and "track it." You can see whose read your books! It seems, altogether, pretty interesting!
