What the Feck (WTF): Book Trading

What the Feck?! (WTF?!) is where we discuss bookish topics that had us thinking WTF?! while reading a book, talking to others in the book community or book news. Stop by on Mondays for new topics.

 

Let’s Trade! 

 

I set a personal goal for myself to not spend money on books and read the books I already own. I don’t do a lot of rereading so in order to clear off my physical bookshelf I need to do something with my paperbacks as I read them. I have a local used bookstore but honestly you don’t get much of a return on your books when you sell or trade them.

 

After talking with The Book Vixen on Twitter I decided to create a Google spreadsheet to share with other bloggers/readers that want to swap their books. Each person will have their own sheet on the spreadsheet so others can see what books they have to swap.

It will be up to the people swapping to agree on the swap process. I recommend swapping at least 2 books at a time to cover the cost of shipping. If you mail your books using media mail (US) then the cost is usually under $4.00. So you would get 2 books for that price.

 

If you’re interested in adding your books/audio book CDs to the spread sheet just email me your list, name and email address you want to be contacted at. I’ll add your info to the spreadsheet then share it with you so that you can update your own sheet.
