I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, it wasn’t unusual to find me sneaking a book with a flashlight under my covers instead of going to sleep.
Nowadays, with the advent of the Kindle and iPad, it is far more common for me to read an e-book. It is just so much easier and lighter too (no extra weight to add to my already heavy audition bag). Plus, I can keep a book forever without having it take up precious space in my NYC apartment.
Nonetheless, I was overjoyed when I got an alert from PaperBackSwap.com a few weeks ago that The Happiness Project, a book I’ve been on the waitlist for a dog’s age, had finally become available.
With PaperBackSwap, members post their gently used books that they no longer want. In exchange for the cost of mailing the book (usually less than $2-3), they get a credit to use on any book of their choosing. And if like me, you have less to swap than you have on your request list, you can purchase book credits for about $4, which is way less than buying a new book.
So if you still want to have the experience of holding a real book in your hands, without committing to housing it for life in your apartment, this is a great alternative.
You just have to post 10 books to become a member. Perfect for spring cleaning!
And you can get more credits just for referring friends!
