Free books? You bet!

So, I read, a lot. And most of the time I only read any given book once. But I can't really afford to buy a ton of books. And there's not a library close by that I can access for free. So what's a girl to do, right? Well, I've found a few solutions...

  1. BookMooch is a free site where you can swap books you already own for books you'd like to read. List a few titles there and then wait for someone to request them. You'll get one point for each you send out and .1 for each you list. You can then spend a point to request a book from someone else. With members all over the globe, you can pretty well bet there will be something you're interested in reading.
  2. BookCrossing is like a huge global scavenger hunt for books! Each book is labeled with a tracking number. People then "release books into the wild" for others to find. You go to the site, type in the number and let the prior owners know you have their book. Read the book. Leave a review. Send it on its way again. You can also go on their forums and swap books with other members. I've received books from as far away as Melbourne, Australia. I've sent books all over the world too. I even had one that travelled all over the place and then came back to me!
  3. Free Kindle e-books are great for those who prefer their books in digital format. You don't even have to have a Kindle to read them. You can download free Kindle readers for your PC or Mac, and free apps for all the most popular mobile devices too.
