I just joined a new online service/club - BookMooch which is designed to help people get rid of books that they no longer want and replace them with books that they do want.
It's an international club but I fear that there are many, many members (ahem, Americans, ahem) who only exchange within their country. You have the option of exchanging internationally or not, so it's not against the rules. So far I've sent off six books to five different countries: Finland, Germany, Japan, the UK and the US. And I'm totally happy to do so and sending a normal-size paperback is really not expensive.
But I'm saddened to find that nearly all of the books on my wish-list are available BUT they are available from people who are unwilling to send books outside of their country. Bummer. So I have decided that in the future I will only exchange books with people who are willing to send internationally...otherwise I fear that I will send off all my books never to have any in return! And I would like some in return!
Anyhow, despite that little sour note I'm super excited about BookMooch and I encourage people to join, whether or not you want to mail things internationally!
And with no further ado, here's my Self-Stitched-September outfits for days 12 - 16:
Today, plus Saturday and Sunday I will be wearing very unimaginative outfits as I will be at a meditation retreat. Lots of sitting requires comfortable clothes! I will wear me-made tops but my pants may or may not match them that well :)
