Best Book Forward

“I want to be free!”
This book said to me
(Its previous owner),
And I just said, “Gee!”
“I didn’t know books
Could be quite this vocal.”
But I set the book wild
In vicinity local.
Now the book writes to me
On a regular basis,
From across the world,
From desert, oasis!
BookCrossing.com
Emails me without cease
Whene’er a new owner
Does Read and Release.
So, if you’ve some tomes
That aren’t done talking,
Stop staring in shock,
Let your books begin walking!
