So I was recently reading an article about ways to save money. One of the suggestions was to rediscover that local book depository known as your public library. This I have done in earnest the last few years, borrowing a wide variety of books that I would otherwise never have read because I would have never bought them. I went through a 10-15-year period when I wanted to own my books. Now I have a lot of books that I no longer want to own. Yeah, I could try to dump them at a garage sale or on Craigslist, but that's a pain in the ass just to make a pocketful of change. I could give them to Goodwill, but that would run contrary to my "Screw the needy" adage.
Then I discovered PaperBackSwap.com, where you can trade your books for someone else's books. The premise is simple. You post the books you want to trade, someone "orders" your book, you ship it, they get it and indicate on-line that it's been "received," and you get one credit to your account. Each credit is good for one book. When you order a book someone else pays to ship it to you. Pretty cool, huh? And when you sign up and post at least 10 books, you'll get two free credits toot-sweet!
