Book trade?

I’ve got a bunch of books that I’ve read and all sitting around. Is anybody interested in trading books in bulk? Maybe like 5 books at a time or something between members (to cut down on shipping costs)
what kind of books do you have, I tend to read things along the lines of steven king, dean koontz, or else the true crime type of thing.

New book purchases

The Catcher in the Rye is probably my favorite book of all time; I just never owned a copy. "Confederacy" was recommended to me, and the other two I’ve heard of and they sounded interesting. Any feedback?
i read catcher in the rye as a kid and as an adult and still don’t get why it is so great. Confederacy is a great book

This is because you read it with a preconceived notion that it is a "great" book. That and the book has the deepest resonance with those who have recognized and accepted that they, and those they associate with, are quite crazy. Maybe you aren’t ready for a book that so closely mirrors your life. It will never be a great book.

Let’s attempt to List Every Book You’ve EVER Read

I think it would be cool to have a thread where we list books we’ve read, and as we remember them we can come back and edit our list. We can also help each other figure out the names of books if we just remember the story, and use each others list to help remember. Anyways I’m going to start my own list, I’m sure it will take a while to remember most of them. If you participate you should keep your list in one post, and use other posts for discussion and such.
