BookMooch - new life for old books

Do you belong to a book club?
Are you an avid reader, who doesn't always use the library?

Yes, I am a librarian, and I buy books. There, I've said it. I love to be surrounded by books. My instincts are to pass most of my books along to friends and family - to let others enjoy them as much as I have.

Do you feel the same? If you do, you might be interested in a website I found, called BookMooch.

It's real simple. Just make an inventory of books, at least 10, that you would be willing to mail to others. That's one point for you. Every book you giving away earns you a point. Every book you receive from your wishlist take away a point.

Within the first hour, I had two books people wanted!
Interested? Come to BookMooch and sign up.
