Books to Share

One of the most important, easiest, but most boring roles that I play regularly at home is to throw or give away stuff, any kind of stuff, that had been in the house for years but nobody use and care about them anymore, and they would stay exactly where they were for years to come, had I had not found better places for them, outside the house.

There's always a sensible limit that a house can accommodate goods, old and new, no matter how big the house is. One day you surely need to apply a stricter rule: you can bring any new stuff into your house only when you give away the equal number of the old ones. This way, you can maintain a healthy size of space in your home.

Now, let's talk about books. There are books that had been sitting idle for months in my bookshelves, either at home or at my office. I was thinking that these books might be more useful had I shared with others, either swap them with other persons' books, or just give them away to those who might need them.

With that idea in mind, I invite TAP listeners to see some of my books which can be swapped with yours. You need, however, to be an Indonesian citizen living in Indonesia, or else there should be workable arrangements.

What you need to do are:
  1. Register at Goodreads if you haven't had an account, and then start adding books into your bookshelves, which is quite easy at Goodreads.
  2. Mark the books that you want to swap. Go to "Friends", click "books my friends have to swap", click "Edit which books you have to swap", and mark your books
  3. Go to "Friends", and click "Add friends", and type my email address: and hit "find friend", and add me.
  4. After being confirmed, visit Aroengbinang's bookshelves at Goodreads, or "click books my friends have to swap". Most of the books can be swapped.

Let's read more books and share them with others... See you at Goodreads!
