Web site

Do you like to read? Is your book shelf filled with paperbacks you've read once and never will again? Check out PaperBackSwap.com, a Web site that facilitates the exchange of used paperback books for only the cost of shipping.

Start by listing the books you'd like to swap, then choose your wish list of books you'd like to receive, which are free and yours to keep. The shipper pays approximately $2.25 shipping (for books weighing less than one pound) and the receiver gets a new book to read for free.
