The other day I joined readitswapit.co.uk. You can view my swap profile here. It's a UK site for swapping books. The idea is that you list all the books that you have available for swap and then if anyone wants to swap with you, you can look at their available books and do a straight swap with them. It's great fun. I've swapped 6 books already and am hoping for more. Of course it's not very good for my TBR pile which just keeps getting bigger every day! But at least this way I'm also getting rid of some books that I'm unlikely to read again.
Now I just have to be patient until the postman brings my books. I'm waiting for:
Five Fall into Adventure
Straight into Darkness
A Necessary Evil
Diary of a Hapless Househusband
Also I'm still waiting for Wickedoz, Tales of a Witch's Cat which I bought off ebay the other day. It was one of my favourite books as a child, and now I want to read it again.
Do you ever wish that mail arrived quicker? I think that's why I enjoy downloading ebooks. I like the instant-ness of them. But you can't beat the feeling of excitement when ripping open a new book parcel can you?
