Anyone feel like applying the "Pay It Forward Freebies" concept to books?  We tried it over at GG, but it never really went anywhere.  Personally I thought it had a lot of potential; maybe the larger member base can help out.

Anyway, please post your books in this format, and i can just cut/paste into a text file and open/sort with Excel.

[author last name], [author first, MI]; Title; Book Type*; Condition**

* Book Types
PB- Paperback
HC- Hard Cover
F- Folio (those big-ass oversize ones that wont fit in the shelf)

** Condition
Poor- still readable but thats it (no missing pages, etc, please)
New- or like exactly like new

Anyway, my ranking system is going from memory.  If anyone has book types or conditions to add, or descriptions for them, feel free to mention it and I will edit this post.

I always thought it was a good idea.  I just frequently have a list of books waiting to be read so I didn't participate much at GG.
