I like decentralized, too, as long as we get to post if someone steals our books. I can lend out Body Ecology Diet, Lights out and Sex Lies and Menopause (same authors of Lights Out). Also these videos: Pride 10, Final Conflict, Marc Leiman, Ultimate Kickboxing Championships, Ultimate Fighter Season 1 Episodes 1, 3, 4,
UFC Revolution One, K1 Revenge, K-3, Tito Ortiz vs. Randy Couture, vs. Ken Shamrock, vs. Vitor, and a bunch of Guro Dan DVDs (escrima). Also my women's MMA DVDs when I get them back. I also have the Active Isolated Stretching DVD. Oh, and hippie stuff--a ton of books on herbal medicine, Chinese medicine, qi gong, etc. and Steve Wells CD-Roms (2 disks) on EFT and Peak Performance.

I noticed someone was interested in the MD by Dipasqual or however you spell it. I have the book and would probably be willing to take the risk. I am very interested in reading something by Ross.

Decentralized method works for me!

I have the following books:
Core Performance by Mark Vergensten
The New Rules of Lifting by Alwyn Cosgrove and Lou Schuler
Tao of Jeet Kune Do By Bruce Lee

E-books that I also have print versions of all by Pavel T.:
Super Joints
Power to the People
Relax Into Stretch
The Russian KB Challenge

DVD:
Get Up by Dan John
The Art of Strength Providence by Anthony Digluia(sp?)

ok the interest is there...I'm in....too bad I usually read books and then pass them along or sell them....but I think I have some DVDs like of Chek and other expensive stuff (not sure I would send out the original but maybe a burned copy of it).....who the hell sets all this up now in an organized way? Or is it every man for himself?

This could be a huge thing....although like Greg said...like I dont have enough to do....

Default De-centro

I'm down with the de-central version.

I think we might need at least a centralized library of who has what. Maybe a running thread or something? Checked out Jamila's suggestion but I am not sure I grok how it would work. I'm slow like that.

Yeah, I say we, at the very least, need to start a separate thread where we list the titles that we have available, then we could manage requests, etc. through PM's on the site.

It might also be a good idea to set a time limit like a regular library...that way I don't have to go too long without opening up Starting Strength and re-learning everything I missed the first 15 times I read it!

Is there a way to lend out E-books without all the hastle of printing a copy and shipping? Or are we getting into that grey area?
