Trading books online, does it really work?

Would you willingly trade your book online, even if you are unsure of what the outcome will be? And for those who does trade, are you satisfied? Do you find trading books worthwhile?

I have joined paperbackwap.com and bookmooch.com. I love paperbackswap.com I have been a member for a while now and love how everything works out and all the interations you can have with all of the other members. I recently signed up for bookmooch.com to see if i like it.. Im still deciding.. But I have yet to have a problem with recieving or mailing books.. I recommend it:)

I tried Bookmooch, but was very unhappy with it, and quit after a couple of months. I had credits for sending out books, but I could hardly ever find anything I wanted. Their search engine also isn't very good. Paperbackswap is a great site and just keeps getting better. It has so many helpful features, including being able to report books that aren't in good condition. If a member sends out too many of those, they will be banned from the site.

I trade at Bookmooch mostly, but first started with Paperback Swap and it has been a satisfactory experience. I was able to get some books that I wanted, and that is good. More like an online arrangement.

I've signed up on some sites, but as I live in a country where this kind of thing isn't popular, I have yet to receive or even send out books.

I only trade my books at Paperbackswap and I am VERY satisfied. Once in a while a book will take a while to get to someone or sometimes I'll get a book that the person should not have posted in the system (water damage) but for the most part, I adore it.
