Swapping Your Way to Enlightenment: A Recession Special

Here’s a handy way to weather the recession with your intellect and pocket book intact…

In this very down economy, you can keep feeding your reading habit by book swapping. Yes, that’s right, book swapping. What goes on here is fairly straightforward. You give away books that you’ve already read. In exchange, you get books that you want to read. And the cost (aside from shipping fees) is zero. Plus you’ll save more than a few trees.

On the web, you’ll find two major online book swapping services. The first is PaperBackSwap.com. The second is BookMooch. You can learn more about each service (respectively) here and here.
