I found a way to get rid of all my paper/hard back books!

I was trying to sell them on ebay and I was getting nowhere. I discovered Paperback swap. (Thanks to another mylotian!). This site is great! You post at least nine books on the site. Then, if someone wants your books you get notified. After posting the initial 9 books, you get three credits. Now, you can order three books from others. The only cost is shipping and handling. It's great! I've already gotten three books and sent out multiples. Each time you send someone one of your books you get another credit to get a book. It's great. Now I get rid of my old books and get new ones to read. http://www.paperbackswap.com/index.php?n=7

Why would you want to get rid of your books? Do you never want re-read them? I've only disposed of a few books in my lifetime, and only because I really didn't like their content.

I have WAYYY to many and I need room. Plus, I don't get rid of the ones that I will reread or like. I get rid of the ones that I won't. And at least with Paperback swap I swap with others who enjoy reading, and I discover new books that I may have not gotten otherwise.

this is a good link. this is helpful especially for bibliophiles. i also love reading books unfortunately, i don't live in the US so it will costs me too much to mail some books. it might help me some day.

Hello. I joined that site a while back. I didn't like that you had to list a bunch of books first. I joined another site www.bookcrossing.com and you can list books if you want, make a wishlist, request books from others, people can send you a random act of kindness from your book wishlist and you can send random acts of kindness out to other users. Plus you journal the book and can track where it travels, and what readers thought about it.

Interesting. I'll have to keep this in mind for swapping some of my books. It's nice to know there's an alternative out there. :)
