Geocache Description:

A Bookcrossing Cache in Guldheden, Göteborg

(för svenska se nedan)

Background: Bookcrossing

This cache is a storage place for bookcrossing books.

Bookcrossing works as follows: Books are marked with a unique identifier, a bookcrossing ID, which can be tracked on the site, much like a geocoin or a travel bug.

The idea is that everyone who reads the book can leave a log entry at the website. It is fun when the books change owners often and travel around. You can pass on a bookcrossing book to a friend or a relative, but more exciting is to leave it at a public place (for example at a cafe or on a train) where any stranger might find your book and leave a message!

Description of the cache contents

This cache is an experiment. It is a large container, in which 3 standard-sized pocket books (17.5cm x 11cm) fit easily. The intention is that these books will be bookcrossing books, and that this cache can be used by bookcrossers in Göteborg to bookcross their books.

The rule is, that I don't like rules. So: When you find the cache, take as many books as you like, and/or leave as many books as fit. Be sure to register a pocket book at before you go hunt for this cache! I hope the cache will keep its bookcrossing "spirit", but if not, I will try to introduce more strict rules.

The cache can also be used as a normal cache with normal trading items, but please give precedence to bookcrossing books.

When you put in / take out books, please mention on your log what books you put in and what books you took out. The books can be in any language (however, English or Swedish is preferred); the only requirement is that they have been registered at

Description of the cache location

The cache is located in lovely Guldheden, at the footpath/stairs called "Dr. Lehmanss Gångväg", going down from Dr. Lindhs gata down to the Sahlgrenska area.
