NandiBear.com is a website where books can be tracked as they travel the planet. Just print a passport sticker and affix it to the inside cover of a book!
Getting a passport for books that you are donating to charity or libraries (or gifting) is a spectacular and thought-provoking idea as you may be able to see where your books end up and the new owners throughout the years and maybe even a bit of international travel.
Nandibear passports should also be used for books which you intend to keep for yourself. Someday (perhaps many, many years down the road) your books may end up in new hands. Nandibear passports never expire, they are good forever!
First things first though. What is a Nandi Bear?
The Nandi Bear is a cryptid animal who purportedly lives in Kenya and ostensibly elsewhere in east Africa. The bear is named for the Nandi people of Kenya who believe that the bear hunts humans and then eats their brains.
Please don't be frightened! The Nandi Bear has evolved and adapted to the 21st century. He now thoroughly enjoys tracking books and even has his own website!
