I’m considering doing some book swapping and I’m curious as to how this really works. The concept sounds great and most importantly cheap. While I tend to keep my books, I do have a few I’d be willing to part with for the sake of cheap reading.
Everything I’ve read about book swapping sounds positive and I thought I’d post here and hopefully hear from my readers who have actually swapped. I’d like to know how it worked out for you, and how often you do it. Have you ever not received a book in return for a book you sent? If so, was there any recourse? I’d also like to know what the average wait for a book is. Are you happy overall with the process?
I know of three book swapping sites: PaperBackSwap.com, SwapTree.com, and BookMooch.com. If you’ve used any of these, what are your thoughts about the site. It is easy to navigate, can you find what you want? Can you recommend any other book swapping sites (that you’ve actually used)?
I’m looking forward to hearing from you all and I hope to be swapping soon!
