Now if you are a gotta have "New Book" fanatic then SwapABook the former name for PaperBackSwap is definitely not your cup of tea. These are Used Books that are in "Good Condition" that are exchanged from one owner to the next. There is a certain book condition criteria that must be observed. Just because you are willing to accept Used Books does not mean that you would expect to receive one that is dogeared, highlighted, missing pages or torn. Sorry those book conditions are not accepted and you can not list them on PaperBackSwap. Not to mention there might also be personal stipulations from the person that is requesting the book. "Smoke Free Environment" or "No Pets due to Allergies"

Trading or Swapping books will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars in the course of a year. What's is the average price today of paperbacks? Humm, let's see...$8.95 and in some stores as high as $10.00 if you need large print then just fork over $12.00. Hardcover novels, now you're talking $15.00 to $25.00. Sorry, but those prices for some people might equal to about a tank of gas, dinner for two, movie for two or just plain food on the table.

For every book that you mail out you will receive a credit that you can use to request another book from another person. They in turn just like you are only paying for the postage to mail the book to you. Why do you need PayPal and or Credit / Debit card so you can purchase "PBS Money". This is how you will fund your postage shipping account such that you can create shipping labels right from the site. I personally have an advantage in that I'm an E-Bayer so with my Online Business I have a Postage Scale to actually weigh the books and thus enter any pound or ounce information and know exactly how much my shipping cost will be and how heavy the items are.
