I found some of that thread searching for "book crossing" but they seemed to be accidental hits, so I ignored them - I should have searched without the space! Stamford Arms still seems to be an active crossing zone based on discussion on the forums.

Of the books I've released (not in SE1) most (7 out of 10) appear to have been taken by ungrateful people who aren't participating in the project.

There are two window-sills full of books in the Stamford Arms (although the book we picked up last weekend didn't have any bookcrossing labels or reference numbers, so we couldn't actually 'play the game' and register its next journey) - still, at least 30-40 to choose from (in the corner under the stairs).
