Swapping Paperback Books

Jun 26, 2009

If you like to read, and like to own the books you’re reading, than I have the website for you!

It’s called PaperBackSwap.com and on that site, you can trade the books you read for the ones you still want to read. And, all it costs is the price of postage.

This is how it works: You need to become a member (which is free). Then, you go through the books you own that you’d be willing to part with and you list them on the website. The site will notify you when another PaperBackSwap member wants one of your books and you mail it to them (with a shippinug label you can print off on your computer at home - thus you don't have to wait in line at the post office). On average, most paperbacks cost $2.23 to ship. For every book you mail out, you get a “credit” on their site that you can use to order a book of your own from the website.

According to the site’s founder, they have “half a million unique titles, including hardbacks and audio” - with the inventory changing daily. In addition, you can "swap" textbooks! What a great way to save money in college!

So, if you’re the type of person who is always going out to buy books and have a whole library at home you don’t know what to do with, you may have just found the solution!
