tagging books you leave behind
I've gotten in the habit of writing (my name - season/month reading - and location of reading) in every book i pass on or leave behind or sell to a used shop.
In China the best books are expensive so we share a lot, and in SE Asia it goes the same.
But what I like is seeing where these things have been and where they go.
Please, in the future - do the same. Fill the back cover. Why not?

That's a great idea. I definitely plan on bringing many more books to leave behind on my next trip, and will write name and such in them when I do. There weren't as many books left behind to read/swap this last trip, particularly in some of the smaller, out-of-the-way places along the Mekong. Magazines from all over the world are fun to have too. Cheers.

I (from NZ) picked up a book in Koh Phangan that had been tagged and left by a reader who got the book in Argentina. Tagging the books is a great idea.

I do that all the time. Have yet to see one of them come back to me, though.
