Free Books

Normally, my Christmas list reads like a card catalog. I always want more books. This year, however, that was largely unnecessary.

Why?

PaperBackSwap.com. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Ok, not exactly–members swap all kinds of books, not just paperbacks. You join, list the books you are ready to send on to new homes, and wait for people to request them. You get a couple credits for signing up and listing 10 books; you get more as people request your books. When your book is requested, you pay the postage and send it. When that person receives the book, you get a credit to request a book.

I actually got a couple Christmas presents for other people that way. It’s wonderful. And has saved me lots of money.
