There was an article on CNET today about Bookmooch. This is a book-trading site, basically, similar to LaLa or Peerflix, only for books. The setup is pretty simple. You get a point for every book you send out; every book you “mooch” from someone else costs a point. You get a tenth of a point just for listing a book in your inventory. So I got one point by listing ten books, and now I’ve got a William Gibson novel on its way to me. And I’m sending out a Star Wars novel, so that gets me another point. I don’t know if this will result in overall fewer books in my apartment, or more books, but if nothing else, I’m at least moving some stuff around.
