Is there a place to TRADE quilting books?

Howdy fellow quilters and fabriholics...

I would like to know if anyone has information about websites or
newsgroups that provide a listing service of quilting books people can
trade for other quilting books (or fabric!).

[For example, I know of a fitness site that has a video exchange page
where you list the videos you'd like to exchange in one column and your
wish list you'd like to trade them in for in another column. You list
your e-mail address so that those who are interested in what you have,
or have got what you want, can contact you to propose an exchange.]

It would be great if there was something similar for us folks who have
quilting books we will no longer use, and would be willing to trade for
different books or fabric (like a number of FQs). Most of us have books
that we won't use any more. Your trash may be someone else's treasure!
Maybe some computer savvy person with a quilt-related website could
start something like this...

Is something like this already in place? What do you think?

I host a pattern/book exchange.  Quilters send me their lists of
books/patterns that they are looking for and/or that they want to get
rid of.  I compile the lists and email the whole shebang out to everyone
interested about 2x a month.  If someone is interested in something
that's listed, she emails the person directly.
