Hey, Boston area peeps! Anyone going to Boscon should make a point of looking up panels with the guest speakers Eytan and Dani Kollin (aka [livejournal.com profile] dkollin ), the brother author team releasing their first book, The Unincorporated Man, this March. If you get to talk to them, tell them I said hello.

Bookmooch!

My friend, Thea, just shared with me a nifty site she found called Bookmooch. Here are her words about the site:
Jeanine and I have recently discovered Bookmooch, a free online service for exchanging books. We've found new homes for old books of ours (including some of my critical theory texts from college!) and we've gotten books that have been on our to-buy lists for a while. It's great to clear the bookshelves of books you're no longer reading and find some cool new ones, even books that are out of print or otherwise hard to find. You wind up getting much better value for your old books than you would at a used book store since you get a point for each book that someone wants from your inventory, and it costs just a point for each book you mooch. The person shipping the book pays for the postage and it all comes out roughly even in the end. The site has a pretty nice interface, too. It's well worth checking out.

I am not sure what I have to add to this list, and I am not currently looking for something specific, but the idea appeals to me as a good way to move books along on their journey of being read.
