Drifting Books Grateful Hearts

 

Bookcrossing is the practice of deliberately leaving books in public places where they will be found and read by others, who then do likewise.  It originated in Europe a few decades ago.

 

The practice of book crossing has encouraged a reading culture and a wide circulation of books.  The first mass book crossing activity started on 27th June 2007 in Hong Kong.  As for Valtorta, our first book crossing activity will start on 17th November as it is the Feast Day for the Saint of Charity.  Since the books are kindly donated by The Chinese Catholic Community in Australia and Boston in the USA, we are grateful to receive these donations and return their kindness and generosity with ‘a grateful heart’.
