I just posted on the DVD-book thread and then had an idea which you could comment on. Obviously there are many books on Elvis that we love and recommend highly, but for some reason they are no more on sale or we cannot afford to buy them right now...
So I thought I would offer the ones I have for loaning out to other ELC members and in that way we could help each other!? If there is any interest I will give you the list of the ones I have... :)

I'm reminded of Julie now, who copied so lovingly DVDs for many of us!
That felt really great!

Christine,

It's a generous and great idea. The pity is that I have a very short list of 4 books. I had 2 or 3 more, but they were so bad that I sent them right to the trash.

One possible problem we'd have to consider is some dear book getting lost around the world. For instance, Wanda's autographied book. Probably something so special would not go into the list.

I would like to see more comments on this.

Christine, it's kind of you to offer. Books can be heavy. Can you afford the postage? Of course, it may depend on how many requests you get.

Laurie,

Yours is a very practical consideration. It's so true that sending a package may be more expensive than its contents. As I'm living far away from my family since 7 years back, I have been spending a fortune sending them little gifts and I'm talking about posting inside Spain. If one considers overseas posting price, it goes very much higher. It may don't have so great incidence when it's only one book, but may be a heavy load if they are more.

Taking it in account, maybe it could be a previous condition that only one book would be asked from a friend in the forum in a period of time. The friend without the actual means to send or to return a book, simply would not aply for that interchanging until she had a way for doing so. These are difficult times for many of us here in the forum and it would need no explanation at all.

... :oops: you are right, I didn't consider the book being sent back may be too expensive...

But still there are some book which are very light and small, paperbacks...
Small books could also be photo-copied and there would be no need to return them. :roll:

Christine,

Thinking about it, maybe we are putting a stick in the cycle's wheel, so to speak. You had a beautiful idea. Let's give it a life. Anyone will be able to see if she can or not go along right now. Everything is changing so much, so soon...

The books I might offer to loan now are:

"Elvis And Me" by Priscilla Beaulieu Presley
"Elvis & Gladys" by Elaine Dundy
