My TBR is ginormous, so it's not like I need more books! But it discourages me. First BookMooch runs everyone off by not listening to their concerns and now PaperBackSwap runs everyone off by wanting to charge!
Hits to my wish lists have been fairly sparse for a while now, and my inventory doesn't move either. I'm afraid the concept of swapping books is failing...
>3 dkhiggin: I've been wondering about the demise of swapping, too. My reading habits have changed quite a bit since I first started swapping. I read a lot more books with the idea of one-and-done reading, not so much keep forever. I'm a lot more discriminating on the condition of the book, when I do want to keep it, and I'm much less inclined to be interested swapping a new release, when I could more easily get it from a library. And now that the ebook market has expanded to very generous selections both in libraries and on Amazon, more than half now of what I do read is on an ereader, which helps swapping not at all.
FYI: there's a thread for trading credits for membership here:
nothing wrong with more books...
edited to add: but beware of the other discussion threads at PBS, they are rather..... heated.
When I renewed my membership, I saw that you could use PBS money to buy/renew your membership. (I'm now good for another year)
If that fails, you could donate your money to PBS. (just a thought)
If you aren't ala carte, you could post the question on the forum, or have someone you know post the question on the forum, or search the forum for the answer.
>11 Ciarda: Thanks so much for the link! This might be what I'll do. But the pages mentions the goal of 'keeping PBS free', which makes me think the text is pre-2015?
