Book Lovers Have Source For Swapping

Maturity Times Newspaper (Newspaper) - 1/11/2009 by Susan Karsten
Take it from me, if you are an avid reader, you will love PaperBackSwap.com.

I first read of it in a magazine article which piqued my interest an then took a look at the Web site. I searched the site for a few of my favorite authors to see if they were there and I was hooked.

It's been a great experience and so fun to "order" a free book. When I receive a free book I've chosen(delivered in my mailbox) it's a highlight of the day.

If you have at least ten books that you are through with and are willing to send out to other readers, you can join paperbackswap.com-for free! As a new member, you'll post those first ten books and get two (2) "credits" free.

One credit is all you need to request a book from another member. There are over 2,000,000 books posted on this easy-to-search site.

Each time one of your posted books is requested, and you mail it, you will receive a credit with which you can request another book.

There are no fees, your only cost is typically $2.23 per book to mail out a book. You can even print out wrappers and postage if you choose.

Many additional fun features are offered on the paperback.com site, such as the popular Wish List. Posting books is as simple as typing in the book's ISBN number. Check it out and see for yourself. There are...no gotchas, gimmicks or spam.
