Gonzo'ing Bookcrossing

I've been fascinated with since I heard it mentioned by another writer. Check here for Bookcrossing's modus operandi.

Which brings me to the physical-book-in-hand of Gonzo: The Life of Hunter S. Thompson that I recently reviewed for The Internet Review of Books.

I've been told that many book reviewers eBay their advance review copies. That doesn't seem ... well, the sort of thing I find comfortable.

I've decided to release it into the stream of literature charted on Bookcrossing. I plan to leave it somewhere in the Wheeler complex of CoxHealth in Springfield, Missouri tomorrow morning.

I put a note in with the book noting where the next reader might find a review.

I'll follow up here if I see it move down stream in the great river of literature.
