    Default ? about Paperback Swap....

    do any of you use this? I just don't quite understand the shipping part of this....do you print out paper to actually wrap the book in? or is it just a label? I would rather put the book in a manila envelope to mail it.....Also, can you send hardbacks also?

    Thanks,
    Sheri

    Yes, you can print a wrapper to wrap the book in or one that you can use as a label when using a manila envelope, poly mailer, etc. You can also print labels with PAID postage on them for instant credit.

    And yes, they take hardcover books too.

    Yes, I don't generally wrap in just the paper unless it is a small book. I love Paperbackswap.com !!!

    I love PBS too!! I use paper for small books but everything else I put in a manila envelope! I use the paid postage feature more so that I don't have to stand in line at the PO to have the books weighed to be mailed!!

    I love it too. I've been a member for over a year now. Do any of you visit the forums there and if so what name do you use?

    I use the same name there as I do here. You don't have to print out a label, you can handwrite the info. You can mail paperback or hardback books and can ship them in manilla envelopes if you like.

    Just as long as the book is covered!

    I love paperbackswap.com - the problem is that the postage can eat you up if you receive too many requests for books in one week. It's one way to really blow your budget if you have to mail out a bunch of books! That's why I stopped listing books for a while. I couldn't keep up with it financially and decided I was better off selling my books on Ebay. I may not make much money on them, but it's not breaking my budget every week mailing out $20-$30 worth of books.

    The forums are fun. You can talk about everything from books to current events depending which one you go to. There's also the book bazaar where people run deals like 2 or 3 books for one credit.
