The Lower Mainland Bookcrossing Meetup Group Pages

The Lower Mainland Bookcrossing Meetup Group is the fusion of two great ideas. The first is bookcrossing, which is "the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise". The second is a meeting of book lovers. Put them together and you have twice monthly meetings where people bring books they want to leave for others to enjoy, perhaps find one or two or five books to enjoy themselves, and have an evening of sometimes sedate, sometimes raucous conversation. Any books unclaimed at the end of the meeting are left for others to discover.

Bookcrossing has been popularized by the website BookCrossing.com. BookCrossing.com adds a whole new dimension to the experience. By registering books at BookCrossing.com, you can track them (providing the people finding them are nice enough to update the website) and find out what others have thought about them. Books have been know to travel across oceans. But don't worry, you don't have to join the BookCrossing website to participate in the book exchange or come to the meetup.

Is the bookcrossing meetup for you? If you like reading, people who read, and chance encounters with books you hadn't thought of reading, it probably is.
