Free Book Followup

Well, the Free Book Giveaway is over. I've posted the remaining books on PaperBackSwap. I'll wait to go through my current "To Read" pile before getting more from PBS. (If one of you ends up signing up and wants to credit me with the reference, just use my email address.) At present, I have 16 books (not all paperbacks) posted. Considering how long it will take me to read my backlog, I should have quite a bit of credit built up. I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Oh, a word on the Book Giveaway. Three strangers contacted me for books after having found me by Googling for "free books." Amazing that people will search for such things. Two of them followed up by sending me addresses (both in OK, oddly enough), so I sent them the books they requested. Interesting, eh?

Anne, that is interesting. But I do know that for some folks, books are an expensive luxury.

And while I love, love, love the library, it's not the same as owning the book.

There is nothing like owning a book.

The possession of a book becomes a substitute for reading it.

I'm going to have to copy your methods. I need to do some major clearing out and I still have a pile that the used book store wouldn't buy the last time I purged!
