I used this service for a long time before I finally had TOO many books to read. LOL Yes, you can have too many to read. I really enjoyed the fact that you only have to pay for shipping it out and most people are honest about the condition of their books and when they can get them out to us. I had no troubles with the service and would absolutely recommend it!

I have been looking for a way to trade the books that I have for new ones. Thanks for posting this site. I had no idea about it until I saw your post. I've just signed up and will see how it goes.

I think this is an awesome post, and a great idea. I read a lot and have so many books. I have put it into my "favorites" so I can really look into it. Thank you so much for posting this. I have given you a + rating for it.

I've never used it but it sounds like a fantastic site, especially since I tend to accumulate so many paperback books. A local bookstore in our town has something similar set up where you get points for turning in paperbacks and can use the points to get other used paperbacks at the store. However the choices are fairly limited so this site sounds like something I'll be more likely to try.

I joined a few months ago and am very happy with it. I've sent out books and gotten several. It's an economical way to expand your book collection. The site is one of the best designed I've ever used, so it's easy to keep track of your requests and the orders you've sent out. They also have a nice forum for discussions and questions. If I was rating web sites, I'd rate PBS A+.

I've always wanted to join one of these swaps, but never have. I did belong to a group from Judy's Book who did this, but eventually the group was just too small and fell apart. I'm wondering, can you exchange hardback books too or only paperbacks? Does anyone know?
