Do you love to read???

Author: Miranda /

Well do you?? I sure do, I could read all day long if possible, but alas real life, kids, family, errands, etc get in the way so I take advantage of the moments I can get. Once in a while my hubby takes over on a Saturday and let's my just veg and read all day. I have loved to read all my life, just ask my mom, I have heard many many times that she probably spent more money on books than anything else while I was growing up! My hubby doesn't even try to get me books as presents because he knows I have probably already gotten them read, as soon as a new one from a favorite author comes out, i either buy it or have the library find it for me.

I have recently been turned onto a new series. The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, a historical romance with a twist series. I have finished the first book, and now am awaiting the second book to get here (hubby is getting it on his lunch break today) But what to do with all the books I have accumulated....I hate to just let them sit around....well I found this wonderful website where you can request and list books you want and have. You simply list all the paperbacks you have and others request them. It's a free site and all it costs is the shipping of the books. As you list and send books you earn credits to request books from others. Once you receive one, read it, then you re list it for someone else to enjoy. I listed 10 books this morning and am already sending two out! plus I have credits to request two books as well. If you are interested in joining please let them know I referred you. My nick name on the site is of course primitive junkie.

But I also have many hardback books that are just sitting around. So I thought why not offer them here and see if anyone would like to swap books. I will be getting them all together and listing them in a separate post later along with books that I am looking for. If you have one that I am wishing for and see one on my list you would like then all you have to do is leave me a comment with a way to contact you and I would love to swap, all I ask is that you pass the book along once you are done with it. Let's help everyone save on the cost of books! What do you think?

Well it's time to run to the PO and then the library for a reading program for the youngest. I wish you all a good day and stay tuned for my swap post!

I'm so with you PJ, and have been meaning to check out the paperback swap site. My mom's always asking me when I'm going to finally pick up the seven boxes of books that have been sitting at my parents' house for some five years now. (What she doesn't know is that each time I visit, I dive into the boxes and grab the books I want to re-read at that moment. LOL)

But, I've always avoided hardback books when possible because they're not terribly "portable." Still, doesn't mean I won't dig up a couple to share from my next visit "home."
