I have been wanting the Phish Book pretty badly. :think:

Love is not music

Hmm, I am halfway through the Phish book, willing to share when, when I get done.... I shall look through some books I have and get those listed.

I think this is a great idea and know only a limited number of OKP'ers are interested so far, but if we set some generic rules and shipping ideas this could work...

I'd play fair. I think it would be smart if there are 1st editions involved, then it would make sense not to send the dustjacket. That would sufficiently devalue the book so there would be no reason not to give it back. I used to have almost all the Gonzo 1sts. Now only 3 left. I would send something like that out if I could get my hands on Rum Diary.

I'm a bit confused (which is in itself unremarkable)... are we talking about literally trading books permanently, or loaning them?

Cuz you scrubs aren't getting any of my books to keep :)

I've got the William Powell book. Also the C.I.A. "Book Of Dirty Litle Secrets". Don't ask me how I got it, but I think they explain it in the same book.

No, like a book club so to speak, if you have a book and 2-3 people are interested, we send them out, give the person from 3/4 weeks to get 'er done and the mail it to the next person, etc....
