MyBookYourBook. Is this the world’s first P2P book club, aka online co-operative library? Join up, submit a list of 10 of your paperbacks and become part of the online library. When someone wants one of your books, they send you a stamp addressed envelope. You send book. When you want a book, you select from catalogue. Brilliant! £8.95 a year membership.
On joining you submit a list of ten paperbacks you own and are willing to share with others through mybookyourbook. You then gain immediate access to the catalogue of all the books contributed by the other members. Choose the book you want to read by clicking on the title in the catalogue…You send a stamped self-addressed padded envelope to the book owner’s address that they will provide. In turn you will respond to e-mail requests from other members who want to read any of your books entered on the mybookyourbook catalogue. Five weeks later the transferred books are re-entered automatically into the catalogue under the name of the new holder ready to be circulated once again
