As you know, I’m a big fan of swapping stuff. Especially books. When I find a new book I want to read, I first check to see if it is available at the local library. However, if it’s not, then it gets added to my “Want” list on swap.com. I also keep adding books & movies to my “Have” list to increase my chances of getting a book that I want to read.
So far, I’ve made 20 trades, saved $166, and decreased my carbon footprint by 126 lbs. (I’m a fan of statistics…)
Today, I received an email from swap.com that read: Schools need what you have! This was the first I’d heard of swap.com’s new feature called Swap4Schools. Basically, teachers can enter specific books that they want and swap.com users can choose to donate that book.
What an awesome idea!!!
So I will be donating Uglies by Scott Westerfeld to an elementary school in Missouri. And now that I know that teachers are looking for books, I’ll be adding children’s books to my “Have” list as well. I have a whole box waiting to be reviewed. I’m thinking there is some potential there!
Now if there was just a swap for Kindle books… :)
If you like what you read, please share it with your friends.
