SPOTLIGHT: A book lover's delight!

Never know what you might find here in the "Spotlight" post. Could be a favorite blog I frequent. Could be a great deal I found online. Might be an inspiring video or photo. I'll paint this category with a broad stroke, thank you very much. ;)

Today, I want to spotlight one of my most favorite websites in all of Cyberspace. Let me start with a disclaimer. No, I do not sell anything for the site. I can totally vouge for this site too, as I have been a participating member for 4 years now.

Without further ado, I present to you THE PAPERBACK BOOK SWAP.

Trade Books for Free - PaperBack Swap.

Are you a reader? A homeschool mom always searching for books? Would you enjoy getting books for FREE? You can. I do.

Let me tell you how it works -- because it is so easy! I listed a bunch of books on the site (listing an initial 10 books gets the first member in your household free book swapping credits!) and I got 2 free book credits to get started. So you can order 2 books right away - free of charge -- and have them mailed directly to you! Seriously, it's a "no strings attached" deal.
No gimmicks.
No spam mail.
Nothing. You just have to love reading books.

When another member selects one of my books that I have listed, I mail it to them. Yes, I pay for the media mail postage (I think it's $2.35 for most books). But then I get another book credit and I can select a book that I want. When I request a book, another Club Member returns the favor and mails me one of his or her books free of charge. For every book I mail out, I get another book in return - a true shared system!

When someone requests one of your books, all you have to do is print two pieces of regular paper from your printer which includes the mailing address and the recommended postage. Apply the postage, and drop it in the mail. Hey, for a typical paperback, you don't even need to go to the post office.

You really need to check this out. Did I mention I *love* this site? And if you do sign up, please use the following link:

If you use the link above to join, I'll get a free book when you post your first ten books (and you'll still get free books for posting them!) I can tell you how to earn the same credit for referring others once you've registered and listed your first 10 books. And if you have any questions, fire away.

Live wise in Him!

  1. I've never tried PaperBackSwap, although I've heard good things about it. I've used BookMooch for years, which is the same system. Maybe I'll have to try this one, too! :0)

    I LOVE books! And my hubby has gotten really good at building bookshelves!

    Thanks for visiting my blog, I enjoyed reading your comments!


  2. I LOVE reading although, time, has been an issue lately. I buy the hardback books of authors I truly LOVE and I'll pick up paperbacks for a quick read. I so need to do this! I've donated lots of books before, but this sounds wonderful! Thanks!
