readers of paperback books now have another avenue to secure
selected titles. And it could well be more productive than the usual
fishing through boxes at garage sales, or scanning the shelves at
used book stores, or even visiting Costco for the newest paperbacks.
With the use
of a computer one now has access to half a million titles through
PaperBackSwap.com. The web site also offers hardback books
and audio cassettes.
It�s a barter
version of Netflix, only with books instead of movies. PaperBackSwap
involves readers trading books for the price of postage, which in
most cases is $1.59 or less.
All that�s required to sign up is a short list of books you�re
willing to part with. The instant you sign up, the site gives you
three credits towards books on other people�s lists. Books arrive in
the mail, postage paid.
