Member Testimonials

I've been a member of PaperBackSwap for years. I also tell everyone I know or meet about what a wonderful resource - and community - it is.

Sure, things used to be totally free. In other words, if I ordered a book from you there was only shipping to pay on your end. But you'd get a credit and could then order a book from me 100% free. Well, times change and how could PBS benefit at all from that system when nothing's coming in to pay for site maintenance and upkeep?

I've heard that PBS has received negative kickback from a small # of members for introducing a meager trade fee (<$1 USD per trade, I believe). I say? Like all businesses, there will always be a part of the consumer population that either is never happy or feels a need to complain about minor changes. And I feel sorry for those people.

I mean, there's so much to be HAPPY about!!! The way PBS has structured things DOES provide options, which people can willingly buy into, accept on their own terms or opt out of. FREE was great and I loved it, but I'm still a huge supporter of PBS and SwapaDVD. (I'll never use the CD arm - I'm too attached to my collection to part w/anything!)

I'll continue to tell everyone I know and meet to join PaperBackSwap and SwapaDVD, as I believe they provide us all with a great place to congregate, introduce our books (or books we stumble upon in our travels) to strangers we might never have otherwise met and pay a small fee to utilize that service. I love this community.

Congrats to its founders - and the rest of us - for stumbling on such a great idea!

PBS is the best and easiest way to get books and send them. Wrap the book and BAM I get my credit right then. I don't have to wait for the member to get the book. I get my credit right then and am ready to request books right away. No waiting. It can't get any better than that! PBS ROCKS. Walk out to my mailbox and viola, the book is on the way.

Two thumbs up for PBS
