I read like crazy in the summer. Not much is better than biking to the closest river/lake/sea shore and relaxing with a book for an hour or two. I recently came across a website which has been helping me find books I want to read just for the price of postage.
It's called PaperbackSwap.com, but they don't only deal in paperbacks (and there's also a sister site for CD swapping). After signing up you list list the ISBNs of any books you're willing to part with. After listing the first 9 books, you'll get 3 free credits. You can request books posted by others in exchange for 1 credit. When someone requests one of your books and you send it to them, you get one credit. All you pay for is the postage to send our your books, which is $2.13 for me. Membership is currently free, but they've said that they might charge some sort of small fee in the future.
The system is great and the site is really well designed. Nearly everything I've wanted to get my hands on has been listed at the site.
