Want Some Books?

I recently discovered a great way to acquire new books... for free! Well, it's not completely free, I guess. There's a website called Bookmooch that lets you exchange books with others. You can post books of your own that you don't want anymore. Then when you ship someone your book(s), you earn points that you can then use to get books you want that other users have posted.

I just joined today, and was not able to find a couple books I was specifically looking for, but I'm hoping I'll have some luck with it when I poke around a little more and actually get some of my own books posted! It's free to join! Try it out! The more people that join, the more selection there will be!

And don't forget, you can apply this same concept at your local used book store. Sell them books you don't want anymore, get store credit, then buy new (used) books!!

Hello! I found your blog via my daily Google alert for "used books." Thanks for the heads up on Bookmooch.

As an editor, though, I am compelled to point out that you inproperly used the word "that" instead of "who" near ther end of your post: "The more people THAT join, the more selection there will be!"

I'm not trying to be snarky, it's just one of my keenest editorial irritants.

Hi. I teach 4th grade here in Madison, Indiana. I spent a good amount of time browsing your site. Thanks for your words. My site has many issues like yours. I hope to come back soon and read more. Have a good day.
