Your BookCrossing membership is free, but operating this site isn't. Besides the ever-growing bandwidth and hardware costs, we've got a valuable team of dedicated IT professionals working hard behind the scenes to make sure this global traveling book registry remains stable and fast.
Our long-term goal is to keep BookCrossing memberships free forever. To do that, you can help by shopping at the BookCrossing Supply Store
, where a purchase of $30 or more earns you Wings
membership. You can also support BookCrossing by purchasing items from affiliates, which in turn earns a small commission for BookCrossing.
Thank you for supporting BookCrossing.
"Without books the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are the engines of change, windows on the world, "Lighthouses" as the poet said "erected in the sea of time." They are companions, teachers,magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind, Books are humanity in print."
- Arthur Schopenhauer
