Bookcrossing is an unconventional form of popularization of books and readership, mobile, virtual library – without own seat, shelves, library cards. The idea behind bookcrossing is the free transfer of books by leaving them in public places as well as in deliberately created so-called. Bookcrossing shelves (tables, shelves, show cases), so that the finder can read and forward them. The idea of a circus book was born in the United States in 2001, and was initiated by computer programmer Ron Hornbaker. His idea was called bookcrossing (in Polish book exchange, book-circulation, travel book). The response was excellent and within two years the concept reached Poland, also in virtual form. Since 2004 bookcrossers in Poland have been celebrating the National Book of Free Books. Currently, books can be exchanged in many places, and the idea of bookcrossing is mastering the whole world. Bookcrossing requires the social trust and accountability of all users, and he or she is an educational role.
