What To Do With Your Used Books....

We get lots of questions about used books and what to do with them. Here is one way to recycle your books and get something you want in return.

OR: you could donate them to your local library (that would be us!) for their booksale or to be added to their collection.

OR: you could bring in your paperbacks and recycle them through Annville Free Library's recycling paperback collection (this is where you can take a book(s) and keep it or return it with no charge, no check out (please just let us know how many....libraries can't function without statistics!)

Ok, back to BookMooch ......"Give books away, Get books you want" is their mantra.

It is free to join and the only cost is in mailing your books to others.

You get points for using this service: "you receive a tenth-of-a-point for every book you type into our system, and one point each time you give a book away. In order to keep receiving books, you need to give away at least one book for every three you receive."

You can mooch books worldwide and in other languages, have a wishlist, and get feedback scores.

You can browse books by topic, location, language, top books, members, & the moochbar (which is a web browser toolbar icon for mooching books from Amazon)

Sounds like a win/win to me! Check it out!
