Free Writing Books

Not exactly free but I just joined book mooch to get rid of my huge pile of overflowing books in the last 10 years, I’m just keeping the ones that I actually refer to. I will be adding to my inventory all summer in hopes that someone else can get use out of the ones I no longer read. If you haven’t heard of this site, check it out. You get points by sending books to other readers and if you want a book you “mooch” one from someone who is getting rid of it. With books having little value at resale, I thought this made more sense. Of course you have to pay postage to send out the book, but in return you don’t pay postage when you request one. I’m hoping to “mooch” some good reference books this summer.

  1. What a lovely idea! A couple of friends and I have started a cross-country book exchange, but this is great as well. Must check it out, maybe I can get some clear space in these bookshelves.

  2. Never saw book mooch before, what a great idea for a reader. Checked out the site and I’m sure I’ll start using it. Great blog here. Consider our PlotDog Press WOOF contest for some of you posts on writing!

  3. I’m addicted to BookMooch and have sent out 6 books in the 3 days! It’s great for getting rid of books that would otherwise end up dusty and musty in a charity shop.
    On the other hand, I’m finding it hard to mooch things I’m actually looking for (i.e. there are no copies or they’re with people who won’t send to my country). I should probably just browse instead of looking for specifics…
