Kitabu. Book exchange site for language learners
There is another way of free exchange to learn and practice foreign languages. It's a new web page called Kitabu. And in a nutshell is a book exchange site for language learners.
How it works
It's pretty simple. If you have a book in good conditions, just fill in the form in the section "I have a book that you no longer need", and it will be collected.
And if you need a book that is available, you have to order it (in section "I want a book"). You'll just pay the shipping.
You can see that it is really easy. So far, there are books to learn English, French and German. And more will be added.
There are different reasons to built a community like this that you can read here:
- Environmental: sharing books, save natural resources such as wood, save water and to prevent its pollution, save energy and prevent pollution.
- Collaborative consumption: there are books than you don't use any longer, but other people could take avantage of them.
- Economic: it's cheaper to share book than buying new ones.
- Convenience: you will receive at home the book your ordered.
Hence, If you like Kitabu join them and share its link: http://llibresidiomessegonama.wordpress.com
