Tuesday Thingers!


Tuesday Thingers is hosted by Wendi of Wendi’s Book Corner. She seems to find things on Librarything that I had no clue are there!!

Today's question: Have you ever used the Swap This Book function which can be found on the main page of any book (here is an example of Flirting With Forty by Jane Porter: link shown on book page, what it looks like if you click on the link)? If so, what do you think about it? If not, are there any other swap sites you utilize to exchange books once you are done? What do you do with your books if you no longer want them anymore?

I didn't know about the 'Swap This Book' feature on the page of a book on Librarything! Surprise!! I went and took a look of course and am really amazed at how many book swap sites there are online. I knew about a few like BookMooch and PaperBack Swap, but have never used them. I will need to take some time and look at some of the other sites.

Back when I lived in Arizona, I took the books I didn't want or finished reading to a used book store to get store credit for other books. The only problem with doing it online is having to pay for the shipping to send books to people, which isn't bad, but is an extra cost. I have used the Early Reviewer group thread Done with it..to share books with people (and them with me!)
I share my books with my mom and sisters too, so they stay in the family too! Alot of books though stay right with me on my 3 5-shelf bookcases..and 2 3-shelfcases...is that too many?? hahaha.... I love books!

I haven't used any of the book swap sites either, but I think it's a great feature for those who want to.

I love PaperBackSwap, although I use their SwapADVD more than the book site. I didn't know there was a Done thread in the ER group on LT. I'll have to go take a look and see if I can trade a few books. :)

Thanks for participating in Tuesday Thingers last week! I’ve got this week’s posted now.

Take care, Wendi
