Eco-Libris Joins Forces With BookMooch

We previously featured Eco-Libris on Life Goggles with an interview with Raz Godelnik. They’ve now teamed up with BookMooch a leading book-swapping site.

BookMooch is an international online community for exchanging used books that has more than 500,000 members who exchange books for free, using a simple points system – every time you give someone a book, you earn a point and can get with it any book you want from anyone else at BookMooch.

Eco-Libris is a green business that works with book readers as well as with publishers, writers, bookstores and other organizations in the book publishing industry to balance out the paper used for printing books by planting trees. Within six months of operation, Eco-Libris has balanced out 10,000 books.

Eco-Libris and BookMooch are partnering now to offer the BookMooch community a special green option – BookMooch members can earn points by planting trees with Eco-Libris. For every 10 books they balance out, they receive a free BookMooch point they can then use to mooch a book for free. They also receive an Eco-Libris sticker made of recycled paper for every book they balance out, saying ‘One tree planted for this book’, which they can display on their books’ sleeves.

  1. It’s a great idea of selling old books, collect points and buy a new one, good opportunity for all the book lovers. I am a frequent visitor of SiliconIndia, they too provide a wide range of collection of books. It would be great if you can publish your articles in this site, which will create awareness about BookMooch, among the member readers and I am sure that most of the readers are looking for such an opportunity. http://www.siliconindia.com/register.php?id=T49I1Fh5

  2. Bookmooch has very poor customer service. If another member gives you trouble, they will not go out of their way to help you. Other book trading sites like paperbackswap.com are much more user friendly, offer more books, and have better customer service.
