Three is a group out there called
www.bookcrossing.comand they leave books in public places and ask the person that finds the book to read it for FREE.
They also ask that after you read the book you go to there web site which is above and leave a blurb on how you felt about the book. And where you found the book so it can be tracked.
Last they ask you to leave the book in another public place so it can be read again.
I found the above book! which was a pretty good book. The full title and author is
Unusually Stupid Americans: A Compendium of All-American StupidityThanks BookCrossing.com it was something interesting to read while I was washing my clothes.
And it had a good number of stupid things in it that our government nannies do, which in turn says we would be much better off with a LOT less government.
