DVD and Book Exchange

Postby alexraasch » Thu May 12, 2016 6:44 pm

To help people with their language challenges, I have a couple of DVDs and books that I will give away for free to members of this forum. I can offer German and some in English. Ideally, I would like to exchange for something in Spanish or Mandarin but that's optional.

I'm currently compiling a list, which I will post shortly. So, if someone is interested, please let me know.

It would be a good idea to have a regular marketplace.

I did suggest once that we create a book swap site. But couldn't get any programmer types to volunteer.

There's only about 1,000 of us. Maybe just sticky a thread or two (books/multimedia) and then let's see how many people are interested in swapping. If it's just 10, the thread will be of use. If it's more, you will have a case for asking for help.

This is a great idea. I have plenty of Russian books and some DVDs.
