"Paperback swap is awesome,i joined two days ago and i already got 4 book request from other members. Im an avid reader,i love reading and collecting books. Paperback swap helps me let other readers like myself enjoy the books that i have already read and enjoyed. I believe a good book should be read by as many readers as possible and with paperback swap its so easy to share the books that i love with others. I save a lot of money on books too. Its so much fun to be able to be a part of such a fantastic book club."

"As a recent member, I have to say I give this site "thumbs up!" Easy to use and very well set-up. E-mails are great to keep me informed. I like seeing where my books "travel" and it gives me pleasure to pass them on to someone who will enjoy the titles as much as I did."

"I appreciate this club more than you can imagine. Before I became an active member , I used to long for emails of the personal nature. I find, not only my favorite thing in the world, great books, but friendship and an ongoing involvement that brings me a lot of fulfillment in my senior years.Not to mention, what an awesome bargain it is, when you consider how very, very little a book will bring you in the way of trade in value at a second hand bok store.It is so worth the postage , even on a hardback, to think that if you peruse the choices of excellent books available daily (think involvement here :), you can easily recoup that money invested , many times over when you purchase the book of your dreams for only one credit! I love this club, it is a remarkable institution of future friends and phenomenal books.I thank whomever was inspired to make such a place become a reality."

"I have to say I love this website because you can find all kinds of books. I do not mind giving my books away for free because I know I am not losing money. I am getting another book in return. I love the fact someone have came up with swapping books and also CDs and DVDs. I tell a lot of people about this website."
Sherry W. (slynnw43) - Raleigh, NC  - 5/14/2014 
"I just joined paperbackswap. On my second day and already sent two books. Hope the members enjoy them. I love this site and it is SO MUCH FUN!"
Patricia K. (phleb) - Millville, PA  - 4/15/2014 
"I love this idea. How many times to I think of a book, or an author and can't remember something....run to paperbackswap and I can find it. I can remember books from years ago that meant something to me and now....run to paperbackswap and I can have it! I don't have to go to the bookstore, find that I'm the only one in the history of the world who is interested and wait for them to get the book ordered, then go back to the store to pick it up. You know the routine, parking, meter money, slushy, icy sidewalks. Nope. Right here in my warm house I can get what I want. And, even if I do have to wait for my wish list books, who cares? There are so many other books to read. When I come in to shop I still get the same feeling of excitement that I got when I bought my first book with my birthday money...The Five Little Peppers and How They Grew. I loved it and I felt so grown up. Well, I'm beyond grown up now, but I never stopped loving to read and loving books. I've read some really wonderful books and some really horrible books, but I love having the option to come to paperbackswap and ask for any book!"

"Books? Used to be that when I wanted a book my first stop would be Amazon.com. Not anymore! I can't tell you when the last was that I BOUGHT a book! My first stop now is always Paperbackswap. Chances are the book is there for free. AND, let's not underestimate the importance to those of us who love real, actual, paper books of being able to pass them on to other bibliophiles. No more hauling them off to the library for their (maybe) sales, or begging the relatives and friends to please take a few! You will know your books are going to someone who really wants them. Paperbackswap is the best book idea in ages!"

"Whenever I can't find a book(s) in my library-lo and behold its always here! I love PBS!"
Sonali D. - Gaithersburg, MD  - 2/25/2014 
"I recently finished reading "Clowns of God." Even though it was fiction, it struck me of the parallels with the Papacy of Benedict XVI and his resignation. All in all, it was a good read and I'm looking forward to receiving Morris West's two others books in this series."
Norman P. - Minot, ND  - 2/23/2014 
"I received a book recently and was it was interesting to see how many places the envelope had traveled before it came to me. It started in Santa Rosa, CA, on 4-7-12, then Mobile, AL on 10-15-13 to Mesa, AZ on 10-26-13 to Portland, OR on 2-11-14 to my address in Oak Park, MI. At this point this envelope has traveled many miles and I think I will lay it to rest as it looks very tired :) Boy do I love this site!"
Dawn Marie A. (blondelady) - Oak Park, MI  - 2/21/2014 
"I am very pleased with the books I have ordered on this site. I would like to offer a special recognition to Helen L. I just received " The Quilter's Legacy" from her, and the book is in brand new condition. Please take a look at the offerings from this member. Thank you."

"I LOVE PBS. It's my book adoption site, a win-win for both parties. Keep up the good work."
Louisa R. - Plymouth, MA  - 1/15/2014 
"Richard and the team: Thanks for the New Year's wishes to all of us. The same back at ya! You all do an amazing job. I am so glad to be a part of PBS. Wonderful books and wonderful friends have truly enhanced my already wonderful life! Bring on 2014 :-)"

"I have used PBS for years, since my grown children were babies. Thought I was done when the reading requirements were over, however, I have recently obtained over $100.00 in travel guides for an upcoming trip to Europe. What a great value. My college kids are also finding textbooks at PBS. Guess we will be using this service for a much longer time. Thanks to all the great people who make this happen."

"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?"
CONNIE M. (girlofthehollow) - Fleming Isle, FL  - 11/30/2013 
"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."
Joyce S. (Swanton) - De Witt, NE  - 11/20/2013 
"Enjoy reading this is your place for exchanging your good books."
Milagros C. (mec51) - San Juan, PR  - 10/30/2013 
"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 !"

Colleen P. - St Petersburg, FL  - 10/9/2013 
"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!!!!!!"
Cecilia A. (librogal100) - Poteet, TX  - 10/9/2013 
"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!"
Grover V. (JoeG) - Carrollton, TX  - 9/4/2013 
"Have been with this site for some time now. It is the best there is. Saves money and allows you to share your books with other readers."
Eva K. (mistrynut) - Anaheim, CA  - 8/25/2013 
"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?"
