A friend of mine found a book in a cafe the other day.
There was a book mark sticking out of it saying something like, "this book is a gift to you, if you would like it please give it a good home, read it and pass it on". Or something like that.
There was a code number, and a web address where she went and just entered the code. Apparently this is just so that the person having left the book can be sure that it has found a new home.
It appears that this is a completely new idea for people share books that they have enjoyed, with other random book lovers.
What a lovely idea!
