In 2005 Richard Pickering, founder, and Robert Swarthout, co-partner, launched Paper Back Swap. Since the launch, Paper Back Swap now has members in all 50 states including members from Puerto, Rico and Guam.
"I used to buy books on eBay or Amazon, but I was so frustrated with having to pay for the books and then all the extra handling charges in addition to the postage," Pickering explained in a press release sent out in January of 2006.
Co-partner Swarthout added, "The goal of PaperBackSwap.com is to become the largest virtual library of paperback books in the world."
So, do you have stacks and stacks of books you would like to trade with others? Are you looking for another good book to read in your favorite genre? Then you MUST visit Paper Back Swaptoday. Don't worry; as I said earlier, membership is FREE. I just signed up myself, and I've already listed nine books and am waiting for two that I ordered with my credits to arrive. After you join, comment and let me know your thoughts on Paper Back Swap. Also, feel free to share any of the books you listed there. Who knows, I may be interested in what you read. Happy swapping … and reading!
