Rape a love story

Our local pub had this book in it, the title certainly grabbed our attention! Ben got quite attached to it and we asked to borrow it, they said yes and pointed us towards Book crossing . Which I had never heard of before, you leave a book that you have finished with in a public place with a BCID number in it, and when someone finds it they enter the number online and you get to track your books journey around the globe.

What a genius idea!

Tried Book Crossing five years ago. Very disappointing. They take your books and never report them. Maybe people are a bit more clued up on the internets now.

Ben has a quality writer there. The things authors have to do to gain attention.

very reliant on the diligence of other people, far better to fit the book with some sort of electronic tagging device.

or a motion detector which emits a high pitched scream if someone picks the book up.

I think it works best if you swap books with other people on the site, rather than leaving the books to be found.

I couldn't bring myself to give away any of the books that I actually like.
