Here’s an update on the best of the late summer and early fall releases on the topic of diabetes.
And if you are a book addict like myself some of these sites for sharing your passion and perhaps your books, might interest you.
Shelfari-Shelfari is a social networking site for readers, reviewers, librarians (authors, bloggers, publishers) and anyone who enjoys a good book.
The site enables you to build virtual bookshelves of books you are reading, want to read or have read and discuss them. These bookshelves can also be put on your own blog or webpage. Launched in 2006, Shelfari was bought by Amazon in August 2008.
“BookMooch is a community for exchanging used books. BookMooch lets you give away books you no longer need in exchange for books you really want.
- Give & receive: Every time you give someone a book, you earn a point and can get any book you want from anyone else at BookMooch. Once you’ve read a book, you can keep it forever or put it back into BookMooch for someone else, as you wish.
- No cost: there is no cost to join or use this web site: your only cost is mailing your books to others.”
Another swap service that is getting rave reviews:
From Newsweek:”SwapTree a free service that allows members to exchange books, DVDs, videogames and CDs. List items you have or want by entering their UPC or ISBN numbers, and the site will match you with users for a trade. Print out postage through the site; all you pay for is shipping.”
The Wall Street Journal: “Unlike Amazon.com, users don’t have to pay for the actual book, just shipping. Unlike with a library book, there’s no due date (or late fee)..”
