Paperback Swap

I stumbled across the neatest website last week. It is called paperbackswap.com. What you do is post ten books that you are willing to swap and they give you 2 credits immediately to use. Then as people request your books and you mail them to them you get another credit. 1 book = 1 credit. The great thing is there are over 2 million books posted and more added daily. You also have a wish list where you can request books. That way if someone post one you want you get an email asking if you want to order it. It doesn't cost anything except for postage to mail out your book to the next person. It has tons of great features. I have sent off 9 books since last Thursday and have seven coming to me. I have already received two books. Its such a great way to acquire books you want, and to get rid of those you don't need any longer. You girls should take a look at the site and tell me what you think.

I can't belive all the stuff that you can do through the internet. CRAZY! I am horrible about putting anything in the mail so I wont be joining, but I will pass this along to some people who would be totally addicted to this.

I've looked at that website before, and I really would like to join, they have a book with a tape that I can't find anywhere else (not even the library). However, I would have to have books in nice enough shape, and in our family, it would take several hours to find them! However, maybe I will join, because I love the thought of the only cost being postage to send your books out. Now that you brought it up again (I think about it from time to time, but haven't went back there yet), maybe I'll go ahead and find the books, and join!
