- I will add links to synopsis/review (probably not my own review) to these books later/from time to time
- I may change or add books to this list from time to time
- I may add photos of the books also available for sale so that you can view the physical condition later
- Please take care of my books, don't dog-ear them please
- Just email me at emel.siti@ gmail.com with the books you'd like to borrow together with your name, address, and phone number

I just discovered a book swap site called Paperbackswap.com in the US which I think is so cool. Each member post the books she can offer for swaps and for each book she mailed to someone who had ordered it, she can request for any other book in the pool (it's not a one person to one person swap). And you can keep the books you received, unless you wish to post it back to the pool. There's currently 5 million books in the pool to be chosen from! I wonder if it's possible to have something similar to this in Malaysia?

Sharing, for the love of reading! (ooohh, but publisher/distributor/author won't like this though ;p)

Wow! 5 million books. Who knows maybe you, Lydia and I can be the first drop in that ocean (for Malaysia). Good job on getting the list up.

I've finished The Alchemist review here http://thehidayahstory.blogspot.com/2011/04/alchemist-by-paulo-coelho.html I'm going to read another book before I start on The Kite Runner so I can mail you the Alchemist first next week. Do you want to choose another book from my library to hitch a ride with this one? Just e-mail me the book you want. How's the baby? Hope both of you are doing well.

siti,
finally the list eh?
the 'pool' is so cool! 5 mil? my hometown's public library probably only have 200,000 books including the kiddies books. maybe i should write to my MP about that kan?

okey, i'll send over Tapai and Cornwell to you. do e-mail me your mailing address.

i'd like to read Hamka and Atwood. books #14 and #21. thanks.
