bzjude, thanks for the kind words & offer of books for the Xchange program. I understand your sentiments about throwing away books.
We would love to have more books to give a wider selection option to those who comes by for the exchange. Frankly, it helps to have new titles to keep people interested to come for the BEP.

A friend of a friend wants to donate some books. She's in USJ12. Can you send me an email address or something so I can put you two in contact together? Mine's ellenwhyte AT lepak.com
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Is the book exchange still going on in 2012? I'm looking for Enid Blyton children's books in reasonably good condition. I have adult books to offer in exchange e.g. Jeffrey Archer, recipe books, business books etc
Yes, there usually are a few Enid Blyton books. What sort of age group are you looking at?
Hi lhct, my daughter is 5 years old. She is starting to read Enid Blyton books like 'Noddy', 5 Find Outers. I'm looking for series like 'The Faraway Tree', Famous 5 etc.

The next exchange should be the first Sunday of Feb. A notice will be posted in the forum by either Sulynx or mWong, confirming that the meet is on. In the meantime, you can check if the Enid Blyton titles we have (hopefully the list has been updated) are suitable for your daughter: http://www.shelfari.com/groups/63698/lists/read
Alternatively, I can keep an eye out for those titles you mentioned and set them aside for your collection at the following meet.
Thanks for the info. Oops, I have to attend a birthday party 1st Sun of Feb. Never mind, I'll wait for the next one then. No hurry.
Is the book exchange on this Sunday? Still waiting for confirmation. Rgds.
Sorry, but this Sunday's book exchange meet is off as MPSJ has asked for the use of the community hall. mWong posted the reason on the other book exchange thread.

this thread is actually meant for us to list & update the books we have for forumers' info. Right now, the # of books is just too great/many for us to do that.
The other thread of the same name but without 'bk-list' behind it, is for discussions about the program & for us to inform about the date it will be held. Here's the link, http://www.usj.com.my/bulletin/uploa...e-or-Loan-Club
Will explain more when I see you on 19/2.
If you're looking for some books to read, come by our book exchange tomorrow (15/4) at USJ2 Community Hall.
Here are some of the books spotted in our collection.
Absolutely free; no membership fees or deposits and no limit to how many books you can exchange.
