As simple as it sounds, it has revolutionized my life. Am I exaggerating? NO.
For simply the cost of postage (at a media rate none the less), you can swap your old or unwanted books for new (or at least new to you) books! Awesome, right? Now I never have to worry about which book I want to purchase or if I'll really end up liking it. I can just find it on swap and if I like it afterward, I can either keep it -- or simply swap it out again!
I feel like you people (although I don't know you) would really like this. :) If you end up joining - be sure to look me up = mmcbeath

Lucy Valentine is as smart as can be, as single as you can get, and so notqualified to run a matchmaking service. But when her parents temporarily step down from the family business, Valentine, Inc., it’s Lucy’s turn to step up and help out—in the name of love.
Plus, her rent is due.
Here’s the problem: Lucy doesn’t have the knack for matchmaking. According to family legend, every Valentine has been blessed by Cupid with the ability to read “auras” and pair up perfect couples. But not Lucy. Her skills were zapped away years ago in an electrical surge, and now all she can do is find lost objects. What good is that in the matchmaking world? You’d be surprised. In a city like Boston, everyone’s looking for something. So when Lucy locates a missing wedding ring—on a dead body—she asks the sexy private eye who lives upstairs to help her solve the perfect crime. And who knows? Maybe she’ll find the perfect love while she’s at it…

The books take place in Panem, which is North America after it has been destroyed. The Capitol of Panem is in charge in a dictator type role. Every year they force children from each district to compete in the Hunger Games. As you can probably deduce, the main character, Katniss Everdeen, has to compete. The story of these 3 books is very well written- you find yourself conflicted and confused just like Katniss. You find yourself furious and angry just like Gale, her best friend. And you find yourself contemplative like Peeta Mellark.
Read these books- you will love them.
