advice, news & freebies – Recycle Your Books! March 5, 2009

Filed under: Eco-Friendly Living — Rachel @ 4:27 pm

Speaking of books… if you love to read or simply love to recycle, start a free account at  I’ve been using this site for a few months now, and it’s really a great idea.  You post unwanted books as available to other members on the site.  If someone requests one of your books, you mail it to them and pay the postage yourself (which tends to be around $2).  Everytime you ship a book, you get a credit for a free book for yourself.  So, when you find a book on PaperbackSwap that you want, you request it and the other member pays the shipping.  Great!  You also get two free credits just by starting your account and listing a certain number of books. 

PaperbackSwap has much more than paperbacks.  I’ve scored books for my kids, as well as an inspirational Christian read and current bestsellers.  I even found one Waldorf book in the system!  Of course, the more of us that use the site the more variety their will be.  This is a great way to expand your pregnancy or parenting library, as well as pass on books you no longer need.  It’s recycling that helps everyone!

My wish list is full of books I’d love to have, so you all get on their and start posting!
