Book crossing means letting the books pass around in the public. It is originated from Europe several decades ago. Book readers then attached a bookmark in their books and passed around in the public. Those who picked the books can read them freely, but they needed to follow the instruction on the bookmarks and release the books to others again. This activity promotes book reading in an environmental way and those books can be passed to an extensive crowd.


The application is now closed. Thank you for your support!
