I guess it depends on how it works.

Would I be sending my books to someone that wants them for a limited time? Or, would it be more of a trading thing?


I wanted to do something like that with knitting magazines. (Get a circle of people and person 1 sends mags to person 2 who sends mags to person 3 around and around after a certain amount of time. So, you'd get to see them all, but eventually you would get your own back.)

its gonna b a trading thing. i like the idea of this website. u send off a book when it is requested and in turn get a book off your wishlist.

nothing is set in stone yet, we're just seeing who is interested.

Oh... Not for me then. I want to keep my books. I don't have many.



Edit: I don't have many knitting books. I have TONS of other ones.

As fun as this sounds, knitting books cost WAY too much money for me to be trading them...

I could if the books weren't the size of a family Bible.

I'd be interested if it was a "loan" type of thing. I'd like to get them back eventually.
