So I’m starting this website. It’s like pbs (paperback swap) and bookmooch… but it’ll be ARC-SWAP.
This is why:
1. Contests, to be honest, are a pain.
2. Libraries can’t take ARCs as donations… which is stupid. but whatever.
3. You can’t swap them on pbs
4. They take up space
5. They’re not for retail, so you shouldn’t really donate them to goodwill or used book stores.
If you’re like me (or maybe you’re not and you’d like to be) you have stacks of them in your room. I know I have book 2 of this or that, and I haven’t read book 1… so I can’t really review it on time. But other people may want to get their hands on them.
The idea will be the same… post the books you have, and them you’ll swap them with other people. The book you get is yours to keep or mail.
Finished books can be swapped too, but the point of the site is to get rid of all those ARC’s that you’ve finished.
So what do you think? Would you participate?
