Sometimes in the course of a products life we have reconsider our priorities. After months of careful exploration and thought, we have made the sad decision to put Goodreads Bookswap on indefinite hiatus as of October 31, 2011.
We initially launched Bookswap as a way to help our members pass on their favorite books on other readers--and we still love that idea. However, we realized that to properly support and innovate bookswap required more love than we could give. In the end, we feel our focus and our strengths need to be applied elsewhere.
If you requested a book that never arrived and have not been refunded for it, or if you have a question or concern regarding the closure of swap, please feel free to contact us.
We'd like to thank everyone who gave us feedback on our swap system. We really appreciate your passionate comments and suggestions. We'd also like to thank everyone who ever sent a book to another person. A good read in the mail a gift that keeps on giving.
