Sometimes I think it’d be cool if there were a GPS chip installed in every copy of a book — not just so I could track people down (although that would be interesting and entertaining), but so I could google-map where the dozens of copies were and see where their merry travels had taken them.

I imagine I’d see giant red dots over the book warehouses…a few dots over the houses of friends and family…

…and also, naturally, “charity shops”!
