Update (July 26, 2012): If you wish to join the book swap, send an email to edwin.soriano @ gmail.com with Subject: “I am a Book Swap Seller” or “I am a Book Swap Buyer”.
To my dear personal friends,
I have this principle that if I hadn’t used something for more than 2 years, it’s best to pass it on to other people who could make good use of it.
While I was cleaning my house before the new year, I noticed that some of my books haven’t been re-read for more than 2 years.
Some of these books I bought at the bookstore or at the book sale. Some are books given to me that I’ve read many years ago. Some are books that I truly cherish and want to keep for future re-reading, but would like lend to other people who would want to borrow.
Books are meant to be read, not kept.
Thus, I present to you a few books to lend and a few books to sell. This is an experiment. When this is done, I’ll tell you what worked and what didn’t work. And I’ll encourage you to lend your books and sell your books as well :-) .

How it works:
- The books to Lend are only open to my personal friends. I will Lend you any 1 or 2 books for 2 months.
- In exchange, I will ask you to buy at least Three (3) of the books in the Sell Section.
I’ll give you a fourth book for free.
- Prices of books in the Sell Section are between P5 to P250 or more (negotiable).
Name your books and let’s find a win-win price. Madali ako kausap :-) .
- First come, first served. Leave a comment of the titles you want for yourself.
- *Pick-up only* in Makati area
Why am I doing this?
- I want to make space for newer books for me to read.
- I want to spread the wealth — Books were meant to be read, not kept.
Better that they be read by someone who’ll find them useful.
- I sell some of my books (as low as P5!) just to make sure that the people who will buy it really want to have it and not get it just because it’s free.
- If you are a personal friend, you gave me a book and you find it in the list above — fret not, my friend.
This is my way of sharing to others what you’ve shared to me in the past.
- I encourage you, my friends, to share your books as well. Books are meant to be read, not kept.
- List of books subject to change without prior notice.
