    Yeah but will they be willing to send overseas!!!!??

    Wish I could be there to help.

    Alisoun: Blame the USPS for the high cost of U.S. moochers sending books overseas. I use a U.S. address and pick them up when I’m there. BTW Canada and Australia are even worse.

    Sounds excellent. If we get enough members, can we force the Post Office to re-instate book rate? I vote in the U.S., even if I live abroad.

  6. Every time I try to open anything on Bookmooch it’s encrypted. Does anyone know why? What can I do?

    I live in LA and I don’t plan on going. Mainly because it is such a great festival and I just cannot control myself. I don’t think my wallet could take it. However, I am very thankful to those brave souls who will venture there to promote bookmooch. You are brave…very brave!

    I was there today. (It is fabulous. Simply fabulous. A bibliophile’s dream.) I did see the BM booth, but didn’t stop by as I was running for a panel I was attending. I’m going tomorrow too, and if I see the booth, I’ll say hi. 🙂 (It’s easy to lose the locations of things since there is so much going on at this festival.) Many thanks to the person who’s doing this. You rock.

  10. I was there!

    I was at LATFOB, too, working in a Women Writing the West booth. Sorry I didn’t have time to visit the BM booth. What a mob of attendees ! I came back very tired from talking with thousands. How about you? Hope you survived the LATFOB and made many new members for BM. Since I worked a writers’ org booth, I displayed members’ books & suggested they go to BM to obtain them. Have a great week.

    hi there, all i can say is you are lucky people- you are, to be able to go to big book fest style weekend.( i love to do that at least once .) about post costs- guys and girls.it is a sad fact of life that people(moochers are unable or unwilling to send overseas.but the facts are the costs involved are costly from everywere. simple as that. .)it does not matter were you live.i have currently 6 books on my wish list i really want but cannot mooch because of they will not send out to overseas places because of cost.while frustrating,it is a fact of life.at the same time i have on my bio that i will not send hardcovers overseas myself,once again cost,so i do not expect people to send them to me i ask them but i do not wory if they do not..haveing mooch angle partly solves this problem but not fully.
    any way have fun enjoy reading sue.

    I have an idea for promoting bookmooch that might be a good supplement to the business cards —

    Bookmooch shipping labels! Self-stick labels that provide a place for the moocher’s address, the sender’s address, and lets the sender check “First Class” or “Media Mail” or “Media Mail (under 13 oz)” and says “Bookmooch.Com” and maybe includes the bookmooch aliens.

    What do you think?

    In reply to a few of the comments here: There’s an Angel network that will help you get books from people who don’t send overseas. http://wiki.bookmooch.com/index.php?title=BookMooch_Angel_Network

    I’ve used it myself, works great. 🙂

    *hints to John* Maybe a promotion is in order like with the unofficial bookmooch bank? 😛
