Suggestion for getting books cheaply
« on: June 15, 2017, 10:59:22 PM »
I really love a site called Paperbackswap.com. I have received so many books through them that has saved me a lot of money. You earn credits by mailing books that are requested from your "bookshelf", then you use the credits to get books you want. You can also keep a wish list that will automatically request a book when it becomes available. Hope this helps some of my fellow prepping bookworms.

I've been looking for a way to get rid of some of my paperbacks while getting new titles in return. Thank you so much for suggesting this.

I used to use paperback swap, but the terms changed, and since I didnt use it very often, swapping the free books stopped being a savings as opposed to other used book sources. I get books at the local used store sometimes, from Abe Books online, and sometimes even Amazon (especially Amazon for used college textbooks and Ebay for used homeschool bundles )
