I've heard about Bookcrossing maybe 2 years back. From bookcrossing.com:
n. the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise.
So I went in to meetup.com to take a look and subsequently signed up for an account. The system told me the group did not have an organiser at the moment. It said:
At a minimum, we ask that you:
- Confirm that the meeting place is open for business and can accommodate your group
- Show up for the monthly Meetup and welcome members.
- Allow members to contact you through the Meetup.com website (your email address will not be revealed)
Hmm... what have I gotten myself into this time?
Nevermind. Meetup.com also says it's easy to step down as Organiser, so we'll see. If I botch this up and group members start sending me hate mails, I'll drop the Organiser post faster than you can spell "Liblogarian"! :)
