A myLot Book Club?

I hope this is allowed and doesn't get deleted! I was thinking it would be neat if we could start some kind of a myLot book swap/round robin book club. It seems like it would be much better to maybe pay a couple dollars for shipping to send books from member to member than to pay the high price charged these days for every book each of us would like to read. I know anyone here is more than welcome to borrow any book I have if they'd like to read it, and I've got hundreds! Some hardcover from my book club days and many, many paperbacks. So, what do you think? Anyone interested? Annie

I think that sounds just great, anniepa! In fact, I had been thinking of something along the same lines. I buy lots and lots of books and they can really get expensive. I do know of a couple of sites where you can swap books, but I have never taken the time and trouble to sign up for an account and all the other stuff you have to go through. Keep me posted on how your idea is proceeding.(:

Gosh, I didn't mean to leave this discussion and not come back for so long but it disappeared from sight and I forgot about it...lol I'm still interested in this and it seems I'm not alone. So next question - how do we go about getting it started? I'd be very willing to pay the postage to have a book sent to me rather than spending the outrageous price they want for books these days. And books are something I take very good care of; I was taught that books are something to be treated with respect, silly as that may sound to some people! So, if anyone can help me figure out how we can set it up I'm ready to start reading! Annie

I think that is a great idea. I have a lot of books at home and after i read them they just sit there gathering dust. Theres some amazing books out there too that i would love to read.

Hey, I like that. It's a wonderful idea. Count me in! I have been looking for a local book club to join in but have not really found the time to browse about in our community. So my only option is to go to the bookstores and you are correct, the cost of books do not come cheap. I read mostly paper backs because they cost less than hard bound ones.

I'm certainly interested, if someone's happy to send books across to China, though I understand that international postage is more expensive than national postage. I moved here 8 months ago with only a handful of books, and am desperate for some new material. Even if no one wants to send to China, I hope that you get your book club up and running!
