I joined Paperback Swap on the internet last year looking for an inexpensive way to get books.  I've got the Kindle and the iPad and do love them both but you have to buy every  newer book on the devices.   With Paperback Swap you only pay the postage to mail the books.  I've been really pleased with the results.  You earn a book for every book you send to someone who requests it and you can order whatever book you want.  I have a love of historical and adventure novels, sometimes you might have to wait for a few weeks to get a newer book but you can plan when your ready to recieve the book.  If your looking for a fun way to get books give a try to  < paperbackswap.com >.

Paperbackswap.com is a great site for people who enjoy trading books.   The concept is simple:  post your books on the site, then wait for someone to request one of them.  When they do, you simply wrap your book and mail it to them.  You receive a credit on the site for any book posted - and there's over 4.5 million books.   You pay nothing for the books you request - your only expense is the postage you spend mailing books out.  And the site even prints …
