Websites bring you the titles that clutter other people's shelves
If you love to read but are watching your pennies (and the library's too far away), consider joining an online book-swapping club like PaperBackSwap or BookMooch or TitleTrader. All let you exchange books with faraway readers for the cost of postage.
You post a list of the books hanging around your house and look over the lists of other members. If someone wants one of yours, you receive an email with the address. As the sender, you pay the postage, currently $2.38 for up a pound, but you earn credits with the swap service, which then allows you to receive books.
