Over the years I had to find out, that in 9 of 10 cases, a book found without a BCID is not registered at BookCrossing.com. People read about BookCrossing, and they like to play along, but forget that there is just one rule: register the book and get a BCID. Still, even if the book is registered at BookCrossing.com, it is not easy to link that book with the correct BCID: there always are many copies registered of the same book, and as books travel without almost anyone making a journalentry, we cannot be sure which BCID belongs to the book found. And honestly, the searchfunction of BookCrossing.com is not quite a help for such a research...
Anyway, if you like to follow up the travels of the book found, I suggest that you register at BookCrossing.com and get a new BCID for that book. But please, only if you are 100% sure that there is not a BCID (ex. 123-4567890) mentioned somewhere in or on the book! Wyando, Nov 2012
Glad to see you you're making the effort to report a book you've found.
This book will likely have a BCID on the cover or the first pages, which you can enter above. Then you will be able to write a Journal to tell when and where you've found the book and, if you already read the book, what you think about it. Also, if you like to follow up its journey, you will be able to join at BookCrossing.com. Although, if you don't like to become a member, no problem at all, your journalentry will then be anonymous. Whatever you decide, the one who has released this book in the wild will be more than happy to hear about it!
Oh, you didn't found a book? But came to this site by accident via Google or on the recommendation of a friend? No worries, the sidebar on your right shows you some links about BookCrossing which will serve further help. Although the new German BookCrossing Blog (called Ballycumber blog) is written in German, there is a category English, which contains a few translated posts...
Have fun at and with BookCrossing ,
