I'm actually going to play early this week. It's 15 minutes before midnight so it's still technically Monday night. Usually I don't get my post written until very late on Tuesday nights. The details are this: Marie at The Boston Bibliophile hosts Tuesdays Thingers. This week's topic: 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?
The answer: Once upon a time I swapped. Now that I read exclusively on my Amazon Kindle I don't have books to swap anymore unless I receive one from a publisher or book rep and those I tend to giveaway. I have contest going right, until the 17th, see left sidebar. Sorry I digress, a bit of shameless site promotion there. When I was swapping I used Bookins. I'm sure I came across the site while surfing the net a little over a year ago. I signed on with them because they made everything so easy. Post the books you have for trade, wait for notification that someone wants your book, print postage & package book, drop in any mailbox. I'm all about easy and no hassle. Bookins fit the bill for me for when I was swapping.
BTW ~ If someone out there is a Bookins user I have 266 points just sitting there. If you'd like them let me know. If I get more than one response to the offer I will split them up as equally as I can among those who respond. Please comment by Saturday the 19th at 11am MST. I'll figure out the details and post an update.
I don't use LT's book-swapping column nor do I participate in any book-swapping community discussions.
