How It Works

We are an online book club for people over 18 with US mailing addresses. We share books with each other using the US mail. Each book you send gets you a book credit to order any available book for yourself. You pay postage for books you send, they pay postage for books you receive.

How To Get Books

Your first two books are free (terms apply). Browse among available books and order the ones you want. If a book you want isn't available, add it to your wish list and you will be notified when it is available for you.
