Book Swapping

This area is for members to swap books on various categories. PLEASE, no commercial anything here. This is just to pass on books (and receive them too) to keep the costs of the WRRC down. The terms, postage, etc., are a private matter between the giver and receiver.

General Book Discussion

This is the place to just chat about books in general, whether they were read (or not) in conjunction with the WRRC. It would be a good place to post an inquiry about something you are thinking for reading on a category and would like opinions.
