| NEW, FREE SERVICE TO SWAP USED BOOKS IN FINNISH
In Oct. 2011, Finnishedbooks.com was launched. It is a free service for buying and
selling Finnish books, movies and music. The website is geared towards all Finnish-
speakers in the United States. The website was developed by Antti Koskenrouta, a
Washington, DC based web developer.
When adding a new book for sale, the user enters the book’s ISBN number on the
page. Based on the ISBN, the system attempts to retrieve the basic information on
the book (title, author) and a picture of the cover. The user can also add the back
cover text as well as their own description on the book.
Each seller sets the prices for their products, but the idea is that they would be
nominal. The transactions take place between the buyer and seller. That’s why
there are no commissions on the sales.
The Finnish North American Literature Association (FinNALA) is seeking advertisers
interested in marketing their merchandise, publications, services, and more to a Finnish-
North American literary audience and the community that supports them.

multicultural and multinational group of poets and writers.
Advertising rates and sizes are listed below:
One-eight page (business card) $30
