Last week I made a wonderful discovery via on twitter - and that discovery was BookMooch.com.

BookMooch: exchange books and trade them, like a book swap or book barter

Their tag line is “Give books away. Get books you want.” which sums it up very nicely in just seven words! Based on a points system, BookMooch let’s you ’sell’ your unwanted books for points, and spend those points to ‘mooch’ (request) books from other users:

  • Listing a book to give away = +0.1 points
  • Sending a book to someone in your country = +1 point
  • Sending a book to someone internationally = +3 points
  • ‘Mooching’ a book from someone in your country = -1 point
  • ‘Mooching’ a book from someone internationally = -2 points
  • Confirming that you have received a book safe & sound = +0.1 points

Why use BookMooch?

There is nothing worse in a book lover’s house than an unwanted book sitting in your shelf, when it could be sold or given away to make room for a book that you will love, and read over and over.
