Can't Sell, Too Expensive to Buy.... SWAP!  
I don't remember who told me about PaperBackSwap.com but I adore you! I have been a member for a couple months and have been swapping like a fiend. I put up a lot of my Star Trek Books because I won't be reading them again (minus Peter David) and wanted to be rid of them. I've posted other books. I've gotten books. I've posted the books I've gotten and read. It is like the library only you are paying the postage. The thing is if I get a book I must keep... it costs me about $2.13! I love that. You get credits for every book you swap which is like a free book but really not because you paid the $2.13 to ship a book to someone. If you want a book and have no credits you can buy one for $3.45. It is so simple and that make books cheaper than used bookstores.

And they even have SwapCD.com which is the same thing only with your CDs. I mean who doesn't have a ton of CDs you want rid of. I mean I do. I can post them their and swap to get something I really want! I love it.

I just joined! I had never heard of this, and I just posted 10 books! I have all these books that have piled up around my bedroom and what a great way to get rid of them! Already two people have requested two different books that I posted!

You are so welcome. Isn't it awesome! I love love love PBS. It is way too cool. I just start swapping and it is wonderful that if you get a book you want then you can just keep it. I Love THAT!

Whew! I just mailed off 9 books! 9 out of the first 10 books I posted were taken! (What a bitch to wrap them, most of them were oversized!) Still... it's a great program!

See sometimes it's really fast and sometimes it takes a while. I have 72 books posted... but I had a ton I didn't want. I've swaped like 12 so I'm loving it too.

Yeah it sucks to wrap them sometimes but it is so great to have them gone when you don't want them... and then when those people get them... you get credits and it is so fun just to use them to get whatever you want... I love that!

I don't remember who told me about PaperBackSwap.com but I adore you!

That was me! :)
The same person who got you hooked on Riley Jenson!

I'm really glad that you're enjoying it!!

.....now back to... Dangerous Games... YUP, I started Book 4!

I thought it was you. I just wasn't sure. Well... genius! Oh so excited that your in 4! Tell me when you've finished.

Good yes?

Finished 4!!!

OMG! good? Yesyesyesyes! :)

I finished it this morning. This afternoon I bought 5. Tonight I am starting 5. I don't know if I'll be sleeping much. :)

What can I tell you about 4? Quinn is such an idiot! He HAS to smarten up because if he doesn't Riley will choose Kellen (and he is yummy!!!!) even though she really wants Quinn.

and I love what happened to Gauthier. He was an utterly disgusting character.

That Jin action wasn't bad either even if he was a little freaky (at his house).

I like Kellan too but I adore Quinn. Why? Maybe because he is a bad boy. I always love the bad boys... okay I'm finishing my book tonight and then I'm so reading 5! Eeek!

I'm sooo glad Gauthier is dead. I hated him. Ick.

OOoh! I'm totally gonna look into paperbackswap, sounds cool :)

Doesn't it just. I'm totally loving it. They even tell you how much money you are saving off the retail price. Love that.
