How about some green bookmooching?

We wanted to remind you of our partnership with BookMooch, a great book-swapping community, with a simple and user-friendly points system, where every time you give someone a book, you earn a point and can get any book you want from anyone else at BookMooch.

With more than 74,000 members from over 90 countires and about 500,000 book titles that are available, there's always a good book you can mooch. Once you've read a book, you can keep it forever or put it back into BookMooch for someone else, as you wish. And yes, it's totally free. You only pay for mailing your books.

BookMooch and Eco-Libris are partnering to offer Green Mooching, a special incentive for BookMoochers to balance out their books, and to Eco-Libris fans to start mooching some books.

So what's the incentive? For every 10 books you balance out with Eco-Libris you will receive one BookMooch point you can then use to mooch a book online for free. If you don't have a BookMooch account yet go get one :)

The process is very simple – Email us your BookMooch username after you make a purchase on Eco-Libris, or enter your BookMooch username in the comments box during the payment process. We will credit your BookMooch account accordingly.

And while you're visiting our website, don't forget to check our green gift giveaway, where you can also get free "green" books and gift cards for Strand Bookstore and BookSwim for balancing out 25 books or more.
