Bookmooch Review

I'll say it...
I've turned into a bookmooch junkie!
I loooooovvvveeeee this site! 
{so much better than}
Here is how it works:
BookMooch is a community for exchanging used books. BookMooch lets you give away books you no longer need in exchange for books you really want.

  • Give & receive: Every time you give someone a book, you earn a point and can get any book you want from anyone else at BookMooch. Once you've read a book, you can keep it forever or put it back into BookMooch for someone else, as you wish.

  • No cost: there is no cost to join or use this web site: your only cost is mailing your books to others.

  • Points for entering books: 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 two you receive. 

  • Feedback score: each time you receive a book, you can leave feedback with the sender, just like how eBay does it. If you keep your feedback score up, people are most likely to help you out when you ask for a book. 

  • I have never paid more than $3.00 for shipping
    I ship my books in good 'ole Kraft paper {way cheaper than bubble wrap}
    wrap well with strong shipping tape
    ship media mail {usually always cheaper than 1st class}
    my local hy-vee can send them at the customer service desk so I don't have an added trip to the post office! {my personal favorite!}
    I've already received a few books!
    I've already been to a few garage sales already & bought a few books for .25cents & sent out 2 of them.

    Three books which I am very passionate about are: The purpose driven life, babywise & Dave Ramsey's total money makeover.  My hope is to start collecting a few copies of each & given out when then time arrives.  For example, when delivering a meal to a new mom drop off a copy of babywise with it.  Even if they don't read it {any of them} I think it goes that extra mile to say you are loved.

    Pretty sweet, huh?
