Mooch it!

Molly K writes "Boing-boing reports on a new website called BookMooch, where users can "give away your old books, get others". Salient points: it's free (the only cost involved is shipping your book to it's new owner), it works on a point system (you have to give away books to receive them) and you can donate your unused points to charities (like hospitals or a library fund). Nice site design too."

I've been active on sf-books.com and PaperBackSwap. I'm excited about BookMooch because it's not limited to US swapping like PBS, and it's not limited to science fiction and fantasy like sf-books. I've tried other sites like Title Trader and Bookins, but I wasn't happy with the selection available for either, nor the valuation on the books that makes it too much like a substitute for a currency system. One book for one book is my preference.
