I have never heard of this chain letter phenomenon with books. It seems like a really cool project. I just checked up on the books status and apparently it originally came from Perkasie, Pennsylvania in 2002. It was given to me in 2007 (?) by a friend in Irvine, California who got it from her boss's wife in Newport Beach. I don't plan on giving it up since I tend to read books over and over, but I just thought I'd share this website. I've always preferred used books because they have a mysterious history you usually never get to discover. Maybe I'll send some other books out into the world and see where they end up.
