Online Book Trading

OK, I haven’t done this myself, but I read about it in my fave magazine, BUST, and I may just have to try it. Book-swapping websites have been popping up all over the cyber-world, saving bibliophiles from shelling out cash for a good read and from finding the shelf-space to house miles of already-read gems.

Here’s how they work (generally speaking):

You register online for FREE and list all the books you’re ready to part with. When another bookworm requests one, you mail it and pay the postage, earning credit to request a book for yourself. Either order a book that is immediately ready for a new home, or add those super popular titles to a wish list and have them sent when they’re available.

Intrigued by this “Duh, why didn’t I think of that” service? Check out these BUST recommended websites:

Happy reading!

    How fun is that? I’m not sure I’d actually use these sites (I have waaaay too many books to read already!), but I love the concept. Thanks for sharing!
