Bag a Book at the Laundrette!

BC5If you’re stuck for something to do while your laundry is churning away at the Campus Laundrette near the EHB, why not help yourself to something from the BookCrossing basket we’ve recently set up there?

You may already have seen our baskets of books at the Village Bar, the Martin Hall Bistro, the Student Hub and the ‘S’ Building. This basket replaces the one we used to have in the Fuel Box in the EHB. Just look for the books with the friendly yellow sticker above!

BookCrossing is the leisure reading phenomenon with the aim of encouraging us all to read more for pleasure. Designed as a ‘read me then release’ me scheme, the way it works is that you take any book you fancy, then, once you’ve finished reading it, pass it on for someone else to enjoy. To add to the fun, every book has been given its own ID number, so you can track its journey via the website.

However, to keep the scheme rolling we do need a constant supply of books to keep the baskets topped up! So, if you have any leisure reading books you’re happy to donate to the scheme, we’d really like to have them. Ideally we’d like good quality novels and biographies, autobiographies or memoirs. Please bring them to one of the Library desks, mentioning that they’re for the BookCrossing scheme, and we’ll do the rest!
