international points

Hi -- newbie here in Japan! Love this concept, I have lots of books to send eventually and want to mooch... but I am confused a bit.

In the Points Explained blurb, it says:
>You use up points when:
>Mooching Books: each book you receive costs you 1 point, 2 points if it was postal mailed from another country.

BUT further down, it says
>Mooch a book (from another country) -3 (points)

Which is it? Seems like the only way to get books I want is to mooch from overseas...

It is 3 points for an international mooch. The confusion is because it used to be 2 points to mooch from another country but you received 3 points when you sent a book to another country. John, the man in charge of bookmooch decided to even it up, but there is some information on the site that hasn't been updated.

Thanks. This site could be addicting!
