Swapping Paperback Books Online

Tuesday, 13 February 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

I stumbled upon PaperBackSwap.com yesterday. I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks like it might be a good way to recycle books and get new ones. Here is their description of how it works:

1. List at least 9 or more books in the system to become an active member and receive 3 free credits to get you started trading. List as many books as possible to be more successful in trading.

2. Browse our online list of books posted by club members, and use your credits to order books.

3. Selected books are delivered right to your mailbox, for free!

4. When other members order books that you’ve listed, you mail them from your mailbox and you pay the postage (usually $1.59).

5. You get one credit (good for one book) for every book you mail when it is received by the club member who requested it.

6. List as many books as you like. The more books you mail to other members, the more credits you’ll receive.

UPDATE 9 March 07:
I’m loving PBS. I’ve sent off eight books to new homes and requested and received four back already. It really is neat, I would encourage you to give it a try.

    Since I’m Compacting for Lent this year, this fits in nicely.
