Louise has urged me to check out the site before, but i never actually registered to it until i saw that one may receive free advance reader’s copies of some books. Quite mercernary of me, eh?
There seems to 353 members in Baton Rouge today. Six books have been released into the wild in the past couple of weeks. I forgot the reason why it’s hard for me to stay excited about this site is because so many people have tastes in books that are uninteresting to me. I hate being an elitist pig, but so many of the books being introduced into public places, in hopes of recruiting a new reader, seems to be pulp. I’m not keen on many of the locations that these people pick either… Walmart, sporting goods shops, and computer gaming shops. Few of the books released seem to be picked up by anyone who might care to report them back to Bookcrossing. That’s even more discouraging than whatever snobbery i have towards other people’s tastes.
I’m still mulling over whether to drop off a few extra copies of books in some more strategically located places at the most opportune times, or to horde them all and be a library unto myself.
