(I want everyone to know that I’m not working for or getting paid to advertise for PaperBackSwap.com; it’s just so cool I can’t help but be a little obsessed with it.)
Okay, here goes: I received an email from a friend explaining how this swap works (the info in the email is the same information below in the previous blog post). I followed the link in the email to Swap Books for Free – PaperBackSwap.com and registered. I posted 10 of my own books that I’ve read, they are in good condition, and I don’t want them any more. And only a few hours later I got an email that someone wanted a book of mine. I went to my account, saw the message, responded that I could send the book within 2 days (and you need to know that the prompts on this site are well organized, I don’t have to do a lot of searching around to help myself – what I need to do is spelled out and linked to within every message). Then once I clinked the button “I can send this book” it took me to a page detailing how to send the book to the person requesting it with the option to “Print a wrapper” which is a 2 page print out – one page has my return and address and the address of the person it’s going to with all the correct info (shown below). It’s very easy to follow.
|They recommend wrapping the book in plastic to keep it water proof – I put this one in a quart size ziplock.|
