Hi - my name is Richard Pickering and I'm the Founder of PaperBackSwap. I have two kids and reside in Atlanta, Georgia.

I came up with the idea for PaperBackSwap because of all the traveling that I used to do for business. I found that there was no easy way...

 It's easy to make friends at PaperBackSwap!

Member Testimonials

I love this site, and I've only been a member for a few months! If a book isn't carried by my local library, I can order from another member here, or put it on wishlist and get surprised when it's suddenly available.

I can also find good homes for my old books and earn credit towards . . . more books! I especially like being able to start and supplement my manga collection (this takes time and patience, though). Totally worth it.

I love the PBS web-site. PBS has allowed me to read many titles that I would not have known were available. This site us a great resource for any reader. The availability of books is a plus; and when are looking for a certain, it's so easy to look and find. If it's not available at that time, using the wish-list may turn up a title later.
