The unique feature of is the ability to track a book's journeys via onsite registration. Read the full story by Jim Regan in the Christian Science Monitor...

I just noticed a dollar yesterday that was stamped "Track this Bill at" So I did. My dollar came from Akron, Ohio 78 days ago! I put it in the vending machine at the library--it will be interesting to see where it goes next.
