BookMooch: a book lovers social media dream
BookMooch is a website for avid readers who like giving away old books in exchange for ones they want to read. If somebody has a book on your wish list, they send it to you. If someone wants a book from your inventory, you send it to them. Membership is free, and has reached around 74,000 in more than 90 countries. The website was created in 2006 by founder John Buckman. Some of my favourite Mooches so far are five copies of The New Yorker and A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway.
