Simple Green: Share Your Books

Simple Green: Share Your Books

Finished a book this weekend and placed it on the growing stack of books on our bedside table. The book would've normally gone to the bookshelf, but it's overflowing. We've got a book problem: we either need a new bookshelf, or we need to get rid of some books. Or, we need to share some of our books...

We've posted about book sharing before, but now we're actually motivated to do it.

After reading an article in the San Francisco Chronicle about book sharing via the web, we're finally convinced that it's for us. It sounds simple enough — sign up for a free account, post the books you're willing to share, share them, accrue points, and use the points to borrow the books you want to read.

The Chronicle recommends BookMooch and PaperBackSwap. Can anyone out there recommend one over the other?
