So, I just signed up for paperback swap. You have to post 10 items and then you can request 2, and after that, as soon as you ship an item you can request another. (I think. Maybe it is when the other person receives it and marks that they have it). Anyway, I knew I had a lot of books, but I thought that many of them I would want to keep. Well...I ended up putting 23 on there, and I already have one wrapped up and ready to take to the post office tomorrow. I am sending "Anna Karenina" and let me tell you, that book sucked. I actually couldn't wait for the heroine to die at the end so the book could be over.

I requested "Aztec Blood" and "Aztec Autumn" because I read the first on in this series (name "Aztec" of course) and liked it enough to read it multiple times.

I am also requesting Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (the movie) because I wanted to watch it this weekend and DH didn't have it.

4 other books are marked as being on someone's wish list. I don't quite know what that means, but I think it means they have to actually request it before they send me the info to send it to them.

It will cost $2.93 to send this book. Since I don't ever make it to the library, this is probably the cheapest way to get new books from now on.

    I signed up too. So far I've only listed 3 books, my mom has tons of romance novels I need to list.
    The library was definitely NOT working out for me. I tend to always get the "New" books, so they only had a one week check out with no renewals. As much as I love to read, I hate to be rushed with something as enjoyable as reading. At the end of it, I always ended up paying around $10+ a book on late fees.
    Hope we cross paths there as well. Smile

    I've used it for years. It's a wonderful community of people.

    I haven't used this yet (*puts on long list of things to do some day). The library does work for me though - all three of them.

    I have never read Anna Karena - LOL over your review!
