Hello, squidlets!

I’ve just returned from a family trip to St. Simons Island, GA. I missed you and you and you!

I’ve just got to share a new website discovery! My cousin told me about this great website, PaperBackSwap! I’m in love already! If you’re an avid reader, I think you are going to love it. PaperBackSwap allows you to post books you no longer want. Other readers have done the same, giving you a huge catalog of books to search from. When you post five books, you get a “credit” for one book. You also get a credit for every book you send out to someone. Use your credits to get books from other readers!

When someone chooses one of your books, the site gives you a super-easy and printable mailing label, then you can package your book and send it to the person who requested it. Books do not have to be in “mint condition.” They must be readable and have all of the pages and the covers.

What I’m excited about is having access to lots of books, but getting them for free! Plus, it is an amazing way to de-clutter my apartment (something I’m always looking to do). Also, being a busy bee, I often have difficulty reading fast enough for the library’s due dates.

I’ve been a member for a day, and already I’m looking forward to my first book’s arrival, and I’m also packaging up a book to mail out! How fun! It’s like a book club… with the world! Happy reading!
