Bookcrossing.com is a website where one can register a particular book, drop it some place in the world, and see who will pick it up next and how far it will travel.

The San francisco Chronicle calls the website “a modern-day message in a bottle.”

Intrigued, we had to experiment and see for ourselves, so we “released” a copy of Delphine Pontvieux’s “ETA-Estimated Time of Arrest” into the wild last week.

In order to carry out the “Drop,” Delphine took it upon herself to make it memorable….and jumped off a perfectly functioning air plane at 14,000 feet that day.

Of course, no book or spotted cow was harmed in the process, as we did not literally drop it from the sky! We left it some place at the Midwest skydiving premises (located in Wisconsin) for someone to find it first and, or so we hope, read it, record it on the website, pass it on to the next reader and see how far it will travel.
