New life for used books

Already with about 10,000 available books, the new Web site is offering an unprecedented way to attain and give new life to used books. The site was created by Magnatune and Lyris founder, John Buckman, one of my favorite modern day entrepreneurs.

Completely free to join and use, is truly a genius resource. utilizes a point system to attain books (as well as feedback scores).

If you wish to give your points away, you can donate points to charities and other causes (listed below).

Charitable Fund: a pool of charitable points we give to organizations we believe are worthy
Public libraries: allows libraries to stock their shelves for free
Children's Hospitals: kids can order books directly from their hospital beds
