    Damn, I'm too late. And I bet I'm closer than Crackaboy is. 15-30 minutes away from Texas border.

    How about we have a round-robin-reader?
    Basically: when you're done, mail it to the next person.
    That idea appeal to you guys?

    I have the book at my house, but since I am in Iraq right now I can't send it. I can send it to who ever wants when I get back. I will be home in a couple of weeks.

    I don't think we should limit this to military books. I'm sure we all have a ton of paperbacks that are just gathering dust.
    Besides, media mail rates are pretty cheap.

    Code:
    Media Mail Rates
    
    Weight          Rate
    not over
    (pounds)
    	
    1       	  $1.42
    2              	    1.84
    3       	    2.26
    4         	    2.68
    5       	    3.10
    
    Perhaps we should go on an honor system as far as postage goes. If you send a book to someone, you should expect to receive one. If you receive a book, you should be expected to send one.

    I won't participate for now, but if its still going in awhile, I'll post up the books I have available and some books I'd like to read.
