Yes definitely I also highly recommend Paperbackswap.com. You cycle out the books you've already read, knowing they are going to a good new home! If you ever want to read it again, you just request it from a member and it shows up at your door.

I am still working on my "book problem". My office has stacks of books all over the floor. I am making progress though. I just have to get Penguin to stop sending me piles of free books. I've called them at least 8 times already and left messages. I've sent them tons of email messages. I just don't get why they are ignoring my requests.

I think they are ignoring you because you are doing such a bang up job of disbursing the books for them to people who will publish reviews. smile

I am salivating over the thought of all those unwanted books in your office. I have this fantasy of shopping in there.

BOOKS!!! Thankfully, I just got an Amazon Kindle 3 - which can hold up to 3500 books on it at a time and if you run out of room on the Kindle you can remove it from the Kindle but always download it again if you want to. I'm in love. smile

LOL Jilly you already get my paperbackbook credits smile Free books drift their way into your life!

I'm using a book right now as a placemat under my bowl of soup. That's how bad it is.

OK, must think positive and encouragingly. Right this moment I will email 5 editors about 5 books.

...

OK done. I have 6 books by my desk with orange stickies on them, with who I offered them to and the date. Hopefully I'll get some replies soon!

MW1 - I have an original Kindle and I really enjoy it. It sits right on the treadmill so I can easily read things while I walk! It works MUCH better in that regard than a magazine or a book does.

My problem is if I'm not on the treadmill that I have so many books piled all over that have to be read that I can't "waste" my reading time not reading one of those. The key really is to make progress on these book piles.

I do have the Kindle app on my iphone and I really enjoy the idea that i can have any book i want (almost), at any time. I do like reading on my phone. I do not find it too small at all.

LOL, Lisa, you are right. Free books do find me! I love having your PBS credits. Good on for for emailing about five books.

One thing I have a problem with is papers. I am always holding onto random papers and brochures and article ripped out of magazines, just in case i need them.

I did want to add that I have spent the last few days organizing which books are going to stay here in Serenity (my RV) with me. I am pleased that I made a lot of extra space for myself by moving excess books into the house and out of my RV living space.

Dear Jilly -

That is wonderful that you are organizing your world! I find it makes me much more serene to have my world organized. It is easier to find things, I am not tripping over things, and I have a better sense of being able to reach my goals.

For papers, I highly recommend you get an easy to use feeder scanner. One you can just stick papers into one after another. It makes it incredibly easy to scan everything while you watch a movie and then you recycle the paper. You have all that valuable information in an easy to search and use way.
