Site of the Week: Read It Swap It

If you know of any useful websites or perhaps run one yourself, feel free to recommend it. If I find your site suitable for my weekly feature then I will do my utmost to accommodate it. In return I might merely ask that you link to my blog. But please (and I mean this in the politest possible terms) do not ask me to advertise your commercial service.

If like me you read a lot… a hell of a lot and your book addiction is getting to be a bit of a habit (or they just aren’t selling on Amazon or ebay as you would have hoped) I might have just the thing. Yes, books are getting increasingly expensive and unless you have particularly good second hand book shops near you or charity shops run by canny bookworms, you aren’t going to find what you really need very often.

Never fear, you may want to look at the free service provided by the website Read It Swap It.

It is a simple idea. You register and list the items you want to be rid of. Other members surf through your list and if they see something they like they make a request. You are then invited to look at their list to see if there is anything that takes your fancy. Sounds easy doesn’t it? Next week I’m going to go through all my old books and see if there is anything I may want to offload this way.
