That new website, Paperbackswap.com, I joined last month has turned out to be a winner.

Well, in terms of getting books for free anyway. I’ve only diminished my own pile of books by three so far, but I’m hopeful more will go. I’m scouring my shelves for more books to post.

I got both of Bella’s AP summer reading books: The Adventures of Huck Finn and The Narrative Autobiography of Frederick Douglass.

And I ordered two of the three books my sister wanted at Christmas but was not able to find at Barnes and Noble: Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See and Count Karlstein by Philip Pullman. (The third one was that Lessons Shamu Taught Me – where Shamu’s trainer applies her whale training techniques on her husband with great success – I just ordered through amazon.)

Five books that I wanted/needed for free in one month is pretty good I say.
