Was just thinking I've never found a dropped book! But it seems like so many in NYC are rocking the drop today, I'm going to keep an eye out!

Wouldn't it be cool to find one?

It's 9:00 am on the West Coast and we are at 100 tweets! Sweet droppin' books!

I have a stack of ready-to-donate books in my store, so that people can just grab a book and go drop it! :)

Each book has a Rock the Drop bookplate on the inside and THIS BOOK IS FREE! TAKE IT!!! note on the outside.

I'd never heard of 'Rock The Drop' until I just read about it here: http://sarahnicolas.com/blog/2012/04/rock-the-drop-2012/ but... have you ever heard of www.bookcrossing.com ? There is a whole worldwide network of people who do this over there year round. And they track their books so they can see what adventures the books go on and where they end up. You might want to check it out.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
