    Anyone interested in doing a book exchange? I have a couple fairly unusual books that people might be interested in reading. In the interest of keeping things simple let's restrict to books that aren't valuable or rare. (ie if there is a crease in a page you won't be upset)

    I think the best way to start is simply list the books you have that you are willing to exchange and maybe give a notion of what you would want to exchange it for. Might need to get the moderators to do thier magic to keep the topic pinned up so it don't fade away.

    I got a book if anyone is interested. It's a little different. drawing parralels between photography and Taoism. Liked the front cover, and it was at 75% off.

    Tao of Photography, Seeing Beyound Seeing
    Phillipe L. Goss and S.I. Shapiro
    Ten Speed Press
    ISBN 1-58008-194-0
    Let me know what "different" book you'd trade for
