What a great idea, BookMooch has an easy to enter system for all the books you want to give away (I typed in our MAKE ISBNs), you then receive requests for the books, when you mail the books you get points and then you can ask for books – Link & to help them get started, we’ve added our Makers book as well as copies of MAKE, here’s our inventory – Link.

I’d like to see a mapping feature so folks could pick the books up and perhaps a webcam/barcode/OCR way of entering in the books too…

  1. BookCrossing is very much about setting books free to those who want them. Sometimes it’s a direct swap — particularly at BookCrossing Meetups — sometimes it’s leaving a book in public for someone else to find. Seems like a more powerful and flexible system to me.
