Best Place For Almost-Free Books: PaperBackSwap

Trade Books for Free - PaperBack Swap.

I love books and love finding cheap places to buy them. I’ve spend hours looking over the shelves at local thrift stores looking for new favorites. I just stumbled upon a new place to get cheap books: paperbackswap. The site allows users to post books they no longer want and earn credits they can use for one of the 5 million books other users have posted. The whole thing only costs the price of shipping your own books ($2-3). They also give free credits for getting started and for referring friends. Consider yourself referred!

Last evening, I posted 13 books and mailed out 7 this morning. Total investment = $18, which I’ll turn into seven new books. Perhaps, I’ll pick up something by Faulkner or Hemingway. Happy swapping!
