Swap Instead Of Selling Paperbacks

This really isn't a pointer on selling your old books but it is an option if you are an avid reader with lots of paperback books. There is a club online called paperback swap and you can visit it at paperbackswap.com.

The premise is that you post your paperback boks for trade. As people select your paperbacks, you mail them to the other member. You pay for the shipping. Once they have the book and post receiving it, you get a credit. With this credit, you can look through the database. Select a paperback of your choosing and it gets mailed to you. You pay nothing, they pay for shipping as you did with the book you sent.

That is the basic premise, there may be a few more details. Visit their site and check it out. I use two of their sister sites and one works just as I explained above. The other charges a small fee (probably to cover site costs) but it is still worth it. On their Swap A CD site, I have been able to get CDs that are almost impossible to find to buy. You may find a book impossible to buy.

I use paperbackswap.com, also. I read like people pop m&m's, one book after another--and it's a great way to pass on books and receive others. Great budget saver.

You can also donate used books to your local public library. They should have a group called "friends of the library" and if it works like the group I am a member of they will sponsor a book sale once or twice a year to fund activities for the library.
