5 Places To Get Cheap Books

Start swapping

If you've got books to barter, check out sites such as PaperbackSwap.com, Bookins.com and BookMooch.com.

The rules are simple; generally you list the books you're willing to trade. Every time you mail a title out, you get a credit or point, which you can redeem for a book. At PaperbackSwap.com, which currently lists 2.4 million books, you also can purchase credits for $3.45.

Membership is free on all three sites, so your only cost is shipping.
