BC-Logo-200x71.gifAt lunch today, a friend introduced me to the idea of BookCrossing. From where we sat, he could see a trash can with a couple of books sitting on top. Forgotten or discarded, they reminded my friend of a website,, that encourages people to “set books free” and “put books into the wild”. It’s a neat idea and if you visit the website, it’s amazing where people are releasing and finding books. For introduction purposes, I’m linking to the page from the site that shows the current locations of book releases in Tempe: Check out the site then go set a book free.

Guess who’s coming to Changing Hands?

My very reliable source just informed me that President Jimmy Carter will be coming to Phoenix in December as guest of that fabulous independent bookstore Changing Hands. Carter has a new book he is promoting and will speak and sign books at a location, yet to be decided. You heard it first on Metroblogs.
