Online Swap Meets for Books

Online Swap Meets for Books

Penny-pinching bibliophiles will revel in a new batch of Web sites for paperback swapping. The sites reinvent the classic act of trading summer beach reads and expand summer reading beyond the dusty bookshelves of friends and family.

We tested four Web sites devoted to exchanging books -- Paperbackswap.com, Swaptree.com, Bookmooch.com and Bookins.com.

Unlike Amazon.com, users don't have to pay for the actual book, just shipping. Unlike with a library book, there's no due date (or late fee). These sites allow readers to browse the collections of site members across the country and unload books that they no longer want in their permanent collections.
