    It will be interesting to see if we get a membership spike due to the press. More members; more books! YAY!

    Wow that is so great that ABC did such a neat article. If the entire world could accomplish what BookMooch and that tool lending library has done on a much larger scale imagine the possibilities.

    Off topic: I keep getting wish list notifications for books that are reserved for someone else. How hard would it be to change that? It is so disappointing to think “oh good, I can finally get that book I’ve been waiting for…” only to find that actually, I can’t. 😦

    Hi John,
    I think bookmooch members might be able to help this synagogue in Crete- it was burnt by arsonists and they are now trying to replace lost books. Here is a link and there is a list of books they are looking for in Hebrew, English and Greek.

    Great publicity for BookMooch! I love the service and tell all my friends about it. The people at the post office are intrigued as well…

    Wonderful! I was so thrilled when I was referred here, and hope everyone who sees/reads/hears the article will join in the fun.

    Here in NY we have a Seed Library where you can borrow seeds for your garden, then “repay” them from seeds you save at the end of the season.

    The more we share, the better the world will be!

    Thanks, John!
