BookCrossing Cures Bibliophile?
Check out BookCrossing -- yet another nifty idea made possible by the Internet. I just love the idea. In fact, I love it so much I'm going to try releasing a few books, and it occurs to me that this may be a partial, small-scale cure to my great need to own and have books. I wonder...

In other news, the semester's over. I have four papers to write and four exams to take, and I shall be done with my freshman year obligations.

Current Mood: relieved
Current Music: Chagai's music

Hmmm, I tried this, but somehow the books are still accumulating in my room. I like to *own* them. Well, I can give away the bad ones. And of course in bergen we are two members...

Exams are great fun, right? Good luck!

Have you actually released any books using the BookCrossing scheme? If so, have you received any feedback?

Exams are not always fun. The ones I've had so far were interesting, and that's a good thing. Three of the six exams I've taken until now were fun, though. One of them (Intro to Greek Lit.) was so fun I just didn't want to leave!

I've tried to release books, problem is that there's no (well, one other) members here. I think it works better in a bigger city. Although, it should be possible to make it work around the University area.

But, I kind of like to own my books. I only give away the ones I never will want to read again, and that is relatively few.

Fun exams? Is that possible?? What was so fun/special with the Greek literature exam that you'll count it as "fun"?
