BookMooch October 26, 2007

Our last fun link this week, BookMooch allows you to swap books you’ve read for books you haven’t.  Adding books to the site database and sending them to other people earn you points. You use these points to pay for books that you’d like to read yourself.

I’ve come across a few sites like this in the past but I particularly like some of the features on this one. You can browse by recommendation, topic, location (e.g. books from users in the same country that you are) or use the “Moochbar”, which you can activate as you view books on sites like Amazon.co.uk.

It’s a worldwide site but there are lots of users (and available books) in the UK.
