"Love the sight & love the books I've been able to get here. I read "Winter Soltice" last Christmas season and loved it, does anyone have a suggestion for a good "winter read"? I live in sunny Florida and it takes a special storyline to get me into the mood. I've read all the Jan Karon books, they often cover Christmas. Any others?"
"This is a fantastic site! I have found books to read I never knew existed. I have been able to get entire series of book to read and have enjoyed every single one. I like to repost when read so others can enjoy the book. I also like knowing there are many people like me who like a book in their hands."
"If you love books and reading this is the best site there is !
I've obtained so many books that I couldn't find at an affordable price anywhere else while making others happy by sending them books they have been looking for. And the employees and customer service is wonderful !"
"You guys are the absolute BEST. I've tried another site that made me so unhappy with their service and members. But your members always get out my swapped books so fast. I luv you guys! I'll be a member for life, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!!!!!"
"I have been a member of the club for a few years, and I enjoy it immensely! Not only do I get desired books in the mail, I am able to send out books that I have read to other interested members! This is a wonderful service!"
"Nothing replaces the feeling of curling up with a good book. The electronic versions just don't come close. This website allows those who may not be able to afford their serious reading habit to do so with a wide variety of books. I love PaperBackSwap and will continue to be a member for as long as my eyes allow me. Even then I can just switch to audio books right?"
"Love, love, love PaperBack Swap! Not only can I trade books I have read so they can be enjoyed by others, I can try new authors without spending a small fortune. I am also able to obtain copies of upcoming reads for my book club members by using my accumulated credits! What a wonderful idea to help keep the world reading in this electronic age!"
"I joined this site a few years ago and it has to be one of the best decisions I ever made. I read as often as I can sometimes 2 or 3 books at a time. But as a single mom my budget couldn't afford purchasing new books as often as I read them. That's where PaperBackSwap comes in. I list books I've already read to others who might want them. If someone wants it I exchange it for a credit for a book I want. It's simple, easy and no credit card required. I will continue to use this site until my eyes can no longer read b/c nothing replaces the joy of receiving a book in the mail. I only wish I had found this site sooner."
"I am so thankful for this service. We travel full time and internet service is not always reliable so electronic books do not work for me. As transient we cannot join a library. Trading books on this site keeps me from hording them in our small RV. Whenever I have an address for a month I replenish my supply and I can always send books off"
"This is a great site I joined 3 May 13 and I sorted my books and offered about 12 books at 23;OO (11PM), to civilians, and about 30 minutes later I had 2 requests but members were so helpful my assigned guide and others told me what and how to do. Now less than a month later and 20 books mailed I have at stack to read and some fine new friends to "talk" to. Thanks."
"Fantastic site. I just love to read and this is set up so perfectly. I also love the FREE books! What a great idea! Hope this site is around for many years to come because I have not yet scratched the surface on the books I want to read. Much better than 1/2 price books (who only gives a person pennies for any books you try to trade)."
"I often order books for a relative who is disabled and has difficulty getting out or using a computer. It's great! I get a list of titles desired and I browse PBS for them, order books, and send them off to my happy in-law. Saves money too, and the books can go back into the swap after they've been read."
"Love this site.My husband loves it too! Since I don't spend his money going to bookstores for new authors that I end up not liking. If I start something and don't like it, I just put it in my post books and someone maybe will order it.
Everone has different tastes and it seems as soon as I post a book I get a request for it. I love the ease of just putting the book in my mailbox and receiving one the same way."
"was told about this site nearly a year ago. and it is great. I can find all the books I ever could want to read plus now I have a way to past them on so someone else can get enjoyment out of them. Read on everyone"
"This site is a dream come true for me, since I live in a rural area far from any book stores. I love to read, and this site allows me to get books I'd never know about otherwise. So far the other members have been amazing, everyone following the rules and making it a fun place to trade. Thank you!!"
"I've been on several swap sites, and PBS is by the far the best one. It's well organized, the members are not wishy-washy, everyone seems to follow the same high standards that PBS encourages, and what you get is a well-oiled machine that allows for easy & timely trading. There is a wide selection in the book pool, and if you're patient, you do get many of your wish list books granted. I LOVE books and PBS feeds that passion!"
"I discovered this site almost 4 years ago and since that time,I started taking a class that required several books. Found all of them on this site and was so excited as some of my classmates were paying $150.00 or more for the books at a bookstore. Love trading with people and seeing the distance that some books travel."
"I have never found a site with all the books I have ever wanted at little or no price's! I also have a tons if book I have collected over the years and I don't want to toss them now I can send them to people who will love and love them! : )"
"I love this sight! I like that I can read a series in the order it was written. If the nextbook is not available from a member you can order it at a good price. The Wish
lists are great allowing you to order a book when it becomes avvailable and you don't have to keep searching for the book.It gives me a way to recycle my books and try new authors without spending a lot of money."
"I love PBS. Not only have I been able to find some wonderful books, I have also made some wonderful friends. I have told all my reading friends about PBS and they love it too! It's a "Win, Win" all the way around! Happy New Year!"
