I became a member of PaperBackSwap a few months ago. While the selection isn’t the best, it has supplemented what I’m able to find at my local library. However, I recently discovered another swapping site. Referred to as “the eBay of Swap,” Swaptree.com gives consumers the option to trade in books, CDs, DVDs and video games they already have for items they actually want for just the cost of shipping – typically under $3.
The site is extremely easy to use, and anyone can register for free to set up a “have” list and a “want” list. Then, the site’s two- and three-way trade algorithms instantly find all of the items members (Swappers) can receive in exchange for those items they “have.”
Unlike traditional online trading websites, which typically focus on one type of media, Swaptree.com allows for cross-media trades. So, you can trade in your summer reads for a Madden NFl game for Playstation or a Wii Fit game.
I haven’t registered yet but it looks promising. Has anyone tried this site?
