IN PRAISE OF READIT SWAP IT


Having Seen The Thrift Book on quite a few blogs, I decided to buy a copy. Wow, I was impressed! There are lots of money saving tips some of which I already use and lots of new one's too. There are also lots of useful web addresses, one being the Read It Swap It site (you simply swap books with other readers).
I joined up on the Monday and put on 17 books, within 2 days all my books were wanted, some with 2 or 3 people wanting the same. The hard part was choosing who to swap with!
One word of warning though - be careful with the size and weight of each book. I've just posted 2 hard backs and the postage came to nearly £10! Definitely one for paper backs only!

I love that book. India Knight makes me howl.

I use bookcrossing to get rid of a lot of books and find books in places I visit. Great fun.
