Bookcrossing is a method of leaving tagged books in public places for others to find and report on, via the internet. It is best known for being the method used to circulate the mysterious text called Unlock Reality UR, (that explains the construction of the Universe in simple terms anyone can understand), which was left on park benches in London's Primrose Hill Park, July 24th 2005, and have now travelled all round the world, to various cities in Canada, and the USA, also to Australia, Guadalopa, Brussels, Holland. the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, France, and Dubai, and most major cities in England, Scotland, and Wales, making Unlock Reality by far the most successful bookcrossing book ever released into the wild, (to date 26th December 2006). It is also worth noting that Unlock Reality has travelled all this way via bookcrossing while still in manuscript form, before being offically published.
Unlock Reality is the most successful bookcrossing book to ever be released into the wild. It has travelled further than any other bookcrossing book on record.
