I have to tell you, thanks to -Ann's suggestion about bookmooch, I spent a big part of the weekend on the bookmooch site, posting titles of books I wouldn't mind getting rid of, and then responding to practically instantaneous responses from people who wanted them.
Bookmooch is a book-swap site. For every book you give away, you get one credit that allows you to take a book from someone else. It's world wide, and to sweeten the pot and make you more inclined to mail internationally, overseas books earn you three credits.
Anyway, I posted nine titles on Saturday, and by mid-afternoon I had takers for six of them.
Which means I get to choose six free books from the website. I'm not sure how this will diminish my inventory, but it's going to be a lot of fun.
Thank goodness there are all of you, to help me whittle down my stash.
Here are the winners of the first annual Mrs. G. Inspired Three Dog Blog Book Giveaway. By completely random drawing, executed by a recently-back-from-ice-fishing and sleep deprived Doug, with help from me, and witnessed by Riley (who was watching with great interest) and Boscoe (who was, frankly, sleeping):
The Dive from Clausen's Pier: P. Miller
Mockingbird: My Two Cents
Mary, Mrs. A. Lincoln: Sandy at Myanderings
The Al Franken book: Katydidnot
Too Close to the Sun: MJ Krech
A random blank journal: -Ann! (I know, that wasn't part of my original offerings. But it's my thank-you to her for getting me going on the Mooch, which she had suggested to me more than once.)
Drop me an email with your snail mail address, and I'll dispatch these...as soon as I mail all these bookmooch books....
