I haven't done one of these in while! Today's Tuesday Thingers question comes from Wendi's Book Corner:
Have you ever used the Swap This Book function which can be found on the main page of any book? If so, what do you think about it? If not, are there any other swap sites you utilize to exchange books once you are done? What do you do with your books if you no longer want them anymore?
I have not used the Swap This Book function. I have swapped some books with other LTers through some of the Groups, but not all that often. I like to keep my books; I have always liked the idea of having a library and being able to surround myself with books, but it's just not practical - at least until I finally buy my palatial estate where I have room for a big library. Usually, if I'm getting rid of a book, I hand it off to a friend. I know lots of people who are avid readers and not all of them have big book-shopping budgets. It's nice to be able to give someone a book I really think they'll enjoy. Anything that I didn't enjoy and wouldn't give to a friend, I generally donate to my local library or drop off at Goodwill.
