Amelia | 57 comments http://bookmooch.com/m/ I've just signed up - seems like potentially a good way to get rid of some of the mountains of books I've finished. You know... to make space for more!

Shannon  (bookjunkie57) | 353 comments I'm on bookmooch however I rarely even check into it anymore. Here is my limited inventory. I should probably update this. ;-)

I should also mention I participate on papberbackswap.com and booksfreeswap.com

That's a shame. Did you not have much success with it? I'd love to use paperbackswap but it seems to only be for the US.

I did back when I started (9 years ago) . There was a lot of books going back an forth. In the last 3 to 5 years though I haven't done much of anything. I think so many people are buying ebooks that it has really killed the traffic.

Probably true. I like getting something in the post though. Well, something that isn't a bill anyway!

Yes, that was a nice feeling.

I decided to give it a go - I'm sending six books out and three on their way to me. Fingers crossed!

I said I was going to go through my books this weekend and post a few but I completely forgot. Oh well maybe I'll get them up this week. Hope you swaps go well.

Thanks! I'm up to nine out and potentially nine to me (five agreed). Here's hoping!

Yeah, it is, although I think I might have my head in the sand about just how much money I spend on books anyway... oops!

Ha - yeah, I haven't exactly got a shortage... I moved house recently and the removal men did not look impressed when they saw how many book boxes they had to carry up the stairs!

Do you ship them media mail? It is a slower mail delivery but way cheaper than regular mail.

I wish that was a thing in England! I've found deep sea to be cheaper than I expected though. So far I've sent out 17 books and mooched 11 =)
