We are in a cleaning-house mode and I'm trying to keep it going. If I keep clearing stuff out, it inspires Ethan to clear stuff out...heck, Evan gets into it and Eric...well, he loves to put things away and throw things in the trash, so we're on the right track.
I have heard about PaperBackSwap.com, on other blog sites, and have finally signed myself up and posted some books. Almost 3o of them actually. I don't use the library because 1. it's not convenient and 2. I don't know when I get a book how long I'll want to keep it...sometimes I like to re-read a book a few times or, if it's part of a series, I like to go back so things make sense. Anyway. But buying books, even used, is kind of a waste because then they just stack up on the shelves. So this seems like a good alternative. List your books, request books, and only pay the postage on the books you send out.
But if you order now...just kidding.
There are some related sites linked to PaperBackSwap...SwapaDVD and SwapaCD (CD charges a small fee per CD which would still be well worth it). These sites really caught my interest...we have several DVDs that have been scratched and then thrown away, and wouldn't it be great to trade the never-watched ones to replace the DVDs we are missing??
So sign up. And tell your friends. And request some books/CDs/DVDs. Because darn it, we need to get rid of some of this stuff and it would be nice to get a few new (to us) things too!!
