Book swaps

Has anyone tried http://readitswapit.co.uk.

I've just had my first swap and it seems like a really good idea - only costs the price of 2nd class post. I've got loads of books to get rid of and this seems like a good way of getting rid of them and getting other books I've wanted.

My only criticism, at this point, is that I think it would work better with a credit/ debit system rather than straight swaps, because I've had to refuse several swaps because I didn't want any of their books, and vice versa.

Ne'mind I'm sure I'll get rid of them one day!

I've thought about doing this so I'll definately have a look at the site. I've also wondered about doing something similar on here.
If you want rid of books have you looked at the green metropolis site?

There is one that works on a point system I think. I have never used it but I know people who have and say it is really good. I think it is called something like book mooch but I wouldn't swear to that.

I joined the readitswapit site yesterday and already I've done 2 swaps and I have another pending. I'm really impressed!
