BookMooch is a free service for exchanging used books; you can give away books you don’t need anymore and request others that you would like to have. You earn a tenth-of-a-point for every book you type into the system and one point each time you give a book away. To get a book you need two points. You can also give your points to charities, such as children's hospitals or African literacy. You can request books from other countries, in other languages. You receive two points when you send a book out of your country, to help compensate you for the greater mailing cost. You can keep a wish list and books will arrive automatically when you have the points and/or the book becomes available in our catalog. You also earn two points if you supply a book on someone’s wish list.

John Buckman runs BookMooch from his homes in California and London, England.
