John Cole over at Balloon Juice has an interesting book proposal:
Just finished Bernard Lewis’s What Went Wrong. A great read, and I would recommend it. Andrew Sullivan’s book review club seems to have taken off, and this sparked an idea for me. I would much rather just have a book exchange. If anyone has a book they would like to swap (I usually buy several every month), I would be glad to ship you my copy of What Went Wrong in exchange for another tome on relevant issues, both historical and political. The deal is, you send me the book, I send you the book, we are both responsible for the shipping, and then you send it on to someone else in exchange for another book in the future- a book swap club, if you will. E-mail me if you are interested.
