Michelle (bookexaminer) | 2 comments I just discovered bookswapping, free audiobook sites, free quality eBook sites etc!
Trying to find some of the 1001 books can be a real headache at some of the libraries around here and buying every book can get prohibitively expensive fast; bookswapping (or of course, getting it for free!) works for me!

Ravenskya  (ravenskya) I use both bookmooch and paperbackswap. I've tried titletrader and swaptree but didn't have any luck with either of those.
