Tuesday Dudesday: Books books books.

Physical Books … how old fashioned.
Being a steward of all things digital as I am it is a little weird that when it comes to books I really prefer the physical copy rather than the electronic version.
(Gasp)
I’m not sure what it is – maybe it’s because I stare at a computer screen for at least 8 hours in a day or maybe it’s nice to have something tangible in this world of digital relationships and text based conversations.
Too much?
Anyway there is this cool site I found a while ago called PaperBack Swap:
paperback_swap

PaperBack Swap allows you to post your books and trade other users for their books. How it works is you post your books and when someone wants it – you send it to them (pay the 2 dollars in postage) and they get your book. Once this transaction occurs you get a credit which allows you to request a book from a user and they in turn send it to you. I think when you first start you get one credit for free but I could be wrong.

I have used this service quite a few times and it is awesome for those who enjoy physical copies of books and don’t mind waiting a few days to receive them. Plus it’s basically free (minus postage).

They also have a CD Swap and a DVD Swap.

Check ’em out.
