For all my myLot friends - I would like to share some advice that some of my friends on myLot told me about. I thought I'd share it with you, since it can really multiply your earnings on myLot. I have been informed that, when you post/reply to discussions, if you write at least six lines, you will be paid a higher amount for that, than if you were to just write one or two lines. If you can keep your sentences short, then six lines is not a lot ! So friends, try to keep this advice in mind for your future discussions and the money start to add up quicker than it was before.

What do you do with the books/magazines after you are done with them?

    I simply love picking up a good novel and getting lost in the story line. Sometimes I get so immersed in the story line that I lose track of the number of hours that I have spent. Unfortunately, this love of books has led to a large collection of novel in my house. When the collection gets too large, I do a bit of spring cleaning and donate a small portion of books which I have lost interest in mainly because I like to share and I would like to create more space to keep the new books which I’ll eventually buy. But there were times that I wished I had kept certain books because I wanted to read those years later.

    New books start in my room, to be read and re-read. When the shelf get too full, I sort through and make a pile to be either donated to the school, sold to the secondhand book store, sold at a garage sale or simply given away to other families. The second pile I make is for books I am still interested in reading and this pile gets moved down to the shelves in one of my other rooms. It's a process I repeat twice a year. I never rush to get rid of books though. I am especially partial towards books by certain authors like: Stephen King, Clive Barker, Frank Herbert, Douglas Adams and Ray Bradbury.

    I wish we had some exchange group here where we could exchange books and magazine that we have accumulated over the years. When I sell off my stuff to the second hand book shop, I hardly get any value for them and I really hate it when I give them away for free, even though I know they are going to a right place and will probably help someone out. But what about you all. How do you decide which book to keep and which one to dispose off? Do you donate them to a certain place? Do you sell them to a second hand book shop or do you all do the book exchange?
