Hi - my name is Richard Pickering and I'm the Founder of PaperBackSwap. I have two kids and reside in Atlanta, Georgia.

I came up with the idea for PaperBackSwap because of all the traveling that I used to do for business. I found that there was no easy way...

 It's easy to make friends at PaperBackSwap!

Member Testimonials

I've been a member for over 10 years, but I am especially grateful for PBS during the Pandemic, when all my local libraries are closed.
Josh G. (Beverly Hills, CA) - 4/6/2020
I am 86 and have been a member since 2006. I have the free alacarte membership but get free swaps because i use pb postage and tracking option. I get about 2/3 of my reading thru pbs, buy an occasional new one and the rest are ebooks from amazon and bnoble. This is a great idea and i found the “librarian” other folks helping answer questions meeting my needs. Every once and awhile i get a book on its last legs and toss it when i finish reading it. That is the nature of the beast. Many books i receive are almost brand new. I have almost 2000 swaps. Great job PBS.
