But so many books that I've had over a year!
At least I think I've managed to cut down on the number of books that I bring back from our monthly meetings.

Bookcrossing
Flickr/O6scura here
I saw bookcrossing mentioned here before. so I signed up and left this (http://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/4284722) by a train station in Lisbon. Sure enough someone found it, read it, commented and brought it to York. I think it is such a great way to track your reading material. I may be hooked!

Re: Bookcrossing
100% catch rate! Fantastic! Of course, that means you can't release any more books or you'll ruin it :-)

I have about a 10% catch rate - I've released 64 in the wild and 6 have been picked up. I've an awful lot more controlled releases journalled (given or posted to someone).

My bookshelf is here, if you're interested.
