Sunday, March 9, 2008 Books Are Being Released

Citywide Reads is partnering with to distribute The Highest Tide around the City. During the next week, we will register the books with bookcrossing and distribute them around Santa Monica. The books can be found by logging onto or people can find them serendipitously. The promotion is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Bookcrossing is a free site that registers books and then tracks them as they make their way around Santa Monica and perhaps the globe. The Highest Tide is available now at all of the branches and additional promotional copies will be given out beginning March 24.

Look around your local coffeehouse, laundromat, or even the DMV. You just might find a good book!

BookCrossing is extremely pleased to be participating in the Santa Monica Citywide Reads program and in particular, supporting Jim Lynch's The Highest Tide. We have a very active membership in the Santa Monica and Los Angeles region from members ranging in ages from 6 to 60 in support of literacy initiatives. I look forward to attending in person!

Best Regards,

Scott Sorochak
