Whenever I think of the film Amelie, I am immediately reminded of the little garden gnome that packed up his rucksack and traveled 'round the world (a phenomenon in existence prior to the said movie making it famous). If you loved the liberation of the homely gnome, you will be very charmed by the setting free of your favourite books. As the explaination at says:

... you can register any book you have on the site, and then set the book free to travel the world and find new readers.
Leave it on a park bench, at a coffee shop, at a hotel on vacation. Share it with a friend or tuck it onto a bookshelf at the gym -- anywhere it might find a new reader! What happens next is up to fate, and we never know where our books might travel next. Track the book's journey around the world as it is passed on from person to person.

I just love this idea; it combines the fun of seeing where physical objects travel to (as in with the satisfaction of sharing a new book.

Now all I must do is decide what book to pack up and send out into the world... What would you choose?
