I love free books and am excited to show you the easiest way to get free books for your family right now!
I’ve been using Bookmooch for years now, and it’s a wonderful way to get just about and kind of book for free- even children’s lit! It’s also available globally. Score!! This is not a paid campaign, I just plain love this site.
Bookmooch is a website that connects people who have books to people who want books. Most users fit both those descriptions. When you register (it’s free!) you make two lists:
- Books you have and want to get rid of
- Books you want to receive (Wishlist)
As you type in your wishlist you can see whether or not someone has the book available and the book’s current condition. If it’s up for grabs, you just send a message to the book’s owner through Bookmooch, and most likely they’ll ship it your way. If a book is not available it will remain in your wishlist and you will receive an email when it becomes available. Then you just log in and click a button to request the book. It’s SO easy!
Bookmooch works on a points system, so you should register at least a couple of books you’re willing to part with to list #1 before you request any from your wishlist. Boy, I love decluttering this way! Upon signup you have the chance to receive a book if you list ten to give away and continue to rack up points when you post books and ship books out.
The system is simple and you never have to divulge your address to anyone besides the person from whom you’ll be receiving a book. You can also opt only to ship to certain locations, though admittedly, I get super bummed when I can’t get a book because the person won’t ship out of their home country.
If you want to bulk up your bookshelves and you give your old books a new home, give Bookmooch a try!
