Where do I get my books from? Some I get as gifts and some I purchase or swap. I often check Amazon to see if they have a good price on a book I'm looking for. One of my favorite ways to get books is through swapping but you have to have books that you are willing to swap. The way it works is you post books that you no longer want and other members will request them from you. You ship them the book and you get a credit for any book you want listed on the site. So you're getting a new to you book for the cost of a few dollars shipping. I always ship using media mail which is the lowest price. I've had great success with swapping always getting books quickly and in great condition. If you never heard of Paper Back Swap check it out by clicking the link below.
