Do you know about BookMooch?
I have a love affair with books.
Even lately as I've been listening to as many books from Audible.com as I've been literally reading, I'm conflicted by the fact that when I'm through listening I don't have anything to put on my shelf to remind me (okay, and others) that I've read it.
But I'm out of bookshelf space. Truth is, I've lived my whole life out of bookshelf space. Every time we've bought or built shelves, it's only to take care of the overflow, not to make room for new ones.
So I'm not sure how much use I can bear to make of BookMooch, a sort of fancy bartering system for used books, but I love the idea. I have to find a way to force myself to get rid of some books, and maybe having a way to find a "good home" for them will encourage me. And of course the *getting books* side of BookMooch isn't a problem at all--I'm sure I'll find all kinds of things I'd like to get for free!
Anyway, check it out and tell me what you think...will it work for your bookshelves?
