If you're interested in getting involved in a book exchange, check out my current Facebook status. It's something a friend put together, fun idea.

You are only obligated to send ONE book out to someone, but you will get a number of books in return.

Just sent mine out (direct from Amazon). I chose Ray Bradbury's "Dandelion Wine."

This seems like a guaranteed way to build up a Chuck Tingle collection.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

How does this work that you'll receive many books but only have to send one?

It's just about spreading it to others. The number cited is too specific -- I thought about changing it to something more vague -- but basically, you get the address of a person to send a book to, and meanwhile your address becomes next in line.

Like, I am sending a book to the person who started my friend on it. People who jump on with me send one to my friend. People who jump on with YOU send one to me. People who jump on with your friends send one to YOU. Etc.

The worst case scenario is that it's a one-to-one exchange, which is still fun and great. Best is a lot of shares and you get many books.

I'm in, as stated on FB. Let me know what's up with it as it progresses. Also does it have to be newly purchased, or can it be something you already have and want to pass on?

Something you already own, something newly purchased, a used book from Amazon. Whatever you like.

Sounds like a Christmas scam to me.
