Has anyone been doing any book lending through here? I have a pretty good small collection of UC books I have from my UC. I'm not prego (knock on wood) and these great books are sitting on my shelves while I see that there's momma's out there who are tight on funds and could really use these books!

So, I'm going to go through my books, pull out all the birthing ones and list them in here. Any prego momma's who plan to UC and can't really afford to buy a bunch of books are welcome to borrow them. I'll ship them right to you.

I'd love to borrow some of these-I'd happily pay for shipping to me as well! It's a very generous offer.

I'd be willing to lend some of mine out too. I'll check back in with what I have available when I get home from vacation. I've got some other supplies that I can probably pass along too, urinalysis strips etc.

I realize I'm a little late, but are you guys still offering to lend books? I am an extremely fast reader,and know how to take care of a book!(My dad is crazy about books, and was very strict in teaching us to care for them). Anyway, I am planning an UHB in May of next year, so I am trying to read like crazy...only as you all have mentioned, funds are tight.
