The rules are easy: the member who refers the most new active members wins! There will be multiple chances to win, all summer long. There will be weekly 5-Book Credit prizes, monthly 3, 5 or 10 Book Credit prizes, and if you are the top referrer for the whole summer (from now until Sept 1, 2013) you will get 25 Book Credits! See complete contest details here.
Don't let the name fool you. You can get paperback, audio, and hardback books on PaperBackSwap. There are no membership fees. You get 2 startup book credits free (if you are the first account at your household) that you can use to order 2 books for yourself, right after you successfully complete registration.
I am currently on a book buying ban so I use PaperBackSwap a lot. If any of the following applies to you, please consider giving PaperBackSwap a try:
- I have thought about using a book exchange/swap service.
- I have too many books and need to thin out my bookshelves.
- I haven’t been able to borrow a book that I wanted (from the library, a friend, etc.).
- I have had difficulty finding a book that is no longer in print.
- I have been placed on a book-buying ban (self-imposed or otherwise).
- I have unwanted books (in good condition) but I don’t want to throw them out.
Please re-tweet the following to help me spread the word. Thanks!

Tallulah wants you to know about PaperBackSwap, the biggest book-swapping site in America. If you're a reader, you know how books can accumulate after you have read them. They pile up and gather dust, and you know you won't read them again. You can try to sell them to used-book stores, but you won't get very much for them, even if they are in perfect condition. PaperBackSwap is a better way!
All you have to do is create an account for FREE, list your books that you are ready to share, and send them out to other members when they are requested. Yes, you pay the postage to send your books out (between 2 and 3 dollars for an average-sized book), BUT you get a Book Credit for sending each book (each Book Credit is good for one book - you can order from any member in the club), AND when you request books for yourself, the senders pay the postage to send those books to you.
It costs nothing to participate, except for postage - there are no membership fees. You even get 2 startup Book Credits free if you are the first account at your household - you can use those credits to order 2 books for yourself, right away!
Give your books a better life - no more languishing on dusty bookshelves! Find new readers for them and get new books for yourself. Send a book, get a book. It's easy and it's free!
You can even print the postage right onto the address label, and mail the book from your outgoing mailbox or any blue mailbox.
Tallulah is a good friend to let you in on this! If you do sign up, please use this link.
If you use the link above to join and you become an active member, Tallulah will get a free Book Credit for referring you to the club!
