PaperBack Swap

I was recently introduced to this great site: PaperBackSwap.com -- Your source for swapping books online. Read ... Swap ... Save!

It is an online book club that offers FREE books when you trade, swap or exchange used books. It is currently a free service, though eventually I expect it to have a membership fee.

Here's how it works: You list the books you would like to offer to other members. You earn credits every time you send a book to someone. Every credit is a free book for you. You search through the offered books and choose the one you would like sent to you.

I opened my account last week and have about 20 books currently listed. It was easy to ship the books that others requested and my first two books should be arriving any day now.

You have to check it out.

Note: they also have separate CD and DVD exchange sites.

I love this site. If you get a chance, let me know your user name and I'll have to check out your bookshelf. :) See if you have any books I need.

The books on my "bookshelf" are really random right now... just clearing out some weird books. =) My nickname is ContemplativeMom (see a theme... I'm not very creative) =) What is your's? I've gotta check out what you are offering. =)

I just made one - bluecastle. See? I'm not imaginative either. It's called "branding" yourself. My books are not very exciting. I have to see if my Pat of SilverBush books are in good shape, otherwise I might have to snag yours. :)
