Occasionally, VERY occasionally, we get an email asking us why this site, while somewhat entertaining in a last resort kind of way, doesn't ever focus on any intellectual pursuits. Well, while we don't have an answer for that except for you try to find something intellectual on the Internet, we can offer this:
BookCrossing is a site which arranges free book trades for its customers. If there's a book you want to read, you can see if someone in your city has it, and that person will leave it in a public place for you to pick up. Yes, not only do you get the book for free, you get to go on a little treasure hunt! Your latent inner pirate will spring to life with joy as you literally pursue intellect. What could be better than a site that actually makes reading somewhat exciting? Shut up.
