Today's topic from Marie at Boston Bibliophile:
Book-swapping. Do you do it? What site(s) do you use? How did you find out about them? What do you think of them? Do you use LT's book-swapping column feature for information on what to swap? Do you participate in any of the LT communities that discuss bookswapping, like the Bookmooch group for example?
I don't. No reason why really other than I'm lazy. I get most of my books from the library. I used to buy but then realized since I didn't re-read, there wasn't any reason to have most books in my house on a permanent basis. And thus, why waste my time or money to get them? Does this mean I don't go to book stores? Heck no. But usually I'll only buy one or two books, if any, but will write down a bunch of titles to look up at the library. I read about mooching and swapping and think that might be fun, but then realize that I don't have time to do the other things I want to do, so no need to start another obsession. LOL
I'm sure there are lots of swappers out there so click here to read more about it. It's a great way to get books to read!
