Book links

Our bookmark group is growing steadily! I'm ready to assign partners to those who are ready to go! New swappers can join the group anytime. I'll assign them partners as new people join the group. :) If anyone has any questions, just email me at juliwyant@bellsouth.net, or post/comment.

There are lots of neat book websites, groups, and forums out there! I've been doing a bit of net searching the last couple of days. :) Really has me in the mood to make bookmarks and read some good books!

Probably most of us have heard of (or participate in) Bookcrossing.com. Bookcrossing allows people to put ID #s in books and then give them away -- those who read these books log the book in at the website. Then the book can be tracked on its journey as each person passes it along. The site has book reviews, articles, journaling....all sorts of interesting stuff!!! The books I send out for this exchange will be tagged for Bookcrossing.....it will be fun to see how far they go!

If you're interested in bookcrossing, go and register. It's free, and a fun way to recycle your used books! Release a book into the wild!! :)

Also, there is a Summer Reading Challenge. Signups are open until the 31st....so the join deadline is coming up fast. Here's a website with more info:


If you want to jump in and participate, the challenge has a forum that participants can join. And there are blog buttons that you can snag here: http://ttbookjunkie.blogspot.com/2006/05/calling-all-readers.html

I have lots of books I have been meaning to read.....and I find new ones at the thriftshop all the time! So a reading challenge will be great!

Anyone else have some book links they want to share?

Hugs! Juli
