Lending Library

This Tuesday, I bring you some recession-friendly ideas for literary giving and receiving...

Do you have empty space on your bookshelf that just needs to be filled? Don't have the cash to fill it? Then check out the supercool bartering offer from Meghan at Transletics. For the price of shipping (around $2 or $3), you can receive a volume from Meghan's poetry collection. All books are vetted and reviewed by her beforehand, so you know what you're getting.

For those of you that have too many books, and, like Meghan, are trying to get rid of stuff, consider donating a book (or hey, why not a whole box of books?) to Amicus Books of Marysville. Their book donation project benefits local school districts in need. If you're never going to read The Great Gastby again, why not give a young student the chance?
