Imagine spending the rest of your life globetrotting the world. One day you're in Tallahassee, the next in Timbuktu. You don't know how long you'll stay in each place. Maybe a month, or only a week. Then you're off again on another adventure—destination unknown. 

You can vagabond vicariously, by letting some of your old books hitchhike the world while you watch. It's a blast to leave a cool inspirational book at a bus stop or subway, and trust that the absolutely perfect person will pick it up. That single random act could alter someone's life forever. But wouldn't it be even cooler if you could track where your book ended up?

Well, now you can. Bookcrossing.com lets lets you track the journey of your give-away books. You simply go online and buy some Bookcrossing stickers, labels, or bookmarks (really affordable too, from $3.95) Then, register your book and leave it on a park bench, a coffee shop, or at a hotel on vacation. What happens next is up to the universe. You never know where your book might end up. You can track your book's journey around the world online, as it's passed from person to person.

It's a great way to share some Hay House books with the rest of the world, do some spring clearing, and conserve precious resources all at the same time.

Enjoy the journey.
