When someone requests a book from you, simply print the shipping label directly from SwapReads. Pack the book up, attach the label and that’s it! Ready to be sent.
When a book you want becomes available and you’re the first person in the line, you have 48 hours to place your request. During this time no one else can do it. We all have a life and being online 24/7 is not fun, we get it.
Never feel like you're spending money to send out your books, without getting something in return. There is no need to pay to ship any of your books to others, which makes SwapReads a perfect way of sharing the joy of reading.
Add as many books as you want to your Wishlist, SwapReads will handle it. No need to decide between which books to add or not. Just add them all and we’ll do the rest.
For every 10 books you send (at no cost) to others you get one for free. There is no other way which allows you to free up your shelf space and get books in return.
Many believe that talking about books is even more fun than reading them. With SwapReads Community you can discuss what you've read, get new recommendations, connect with others, and much more.
You’re the owner of every single book you receive from other swapreaders. You fully control what happens next to it. There are no due dates, no penalties, and no requirements to swap it again.
With all the amazing books that have been written, reading can get a little expensive. With SwapReads you can get any available book for less than $5, no subscriptions, no hidden costs, no extra charges. Sounds good, right?
Make others smile when they receive your book in their mailbox! You have the opportunity to turn your books into a special gift that someone is anxiously waiting for.
Do you need to free up some shelf space? With SwapReads, you can be sure the next person that enjoys your book truly wants it and will appreciate it as much as you did!
We are all readers here. Are you looking for recommendations on what book you should read next? Want to discuss a book? Exchange thoughts? SwapReads Community is the right place!
Never again feel guilty about how much you spend on books. Getting any book is less than $5, or get it for totally free after you send a few of your books to others. Now you can read more than ever, by paying less!
The number and selection of available books is not limited by your location. You can get and send books anywhere in the US, not having to worry about extra charges.
Every book you receive was part of somebody's life — it made them laugh, cry or reflect. When exchanging books on SwapReads you become a part of this unique history.
Our mission is to make swapping books as simple and effortless as it can be. Enjoy your next great read or make a special gift for another bookworm in just a few steps.
Create your Bookshelf with books you are willing to send to others, and Wishlist which books you'd like to get. No worries, if something is not available right now, we'll send you an email once it's offered by one of the other fellow swapreaders.
Once the book from your Wishlist becomes available, you have two days to provide shipping details and make a payment. Don't feel rushed, during this time on one else can claim this book.
As the book owner, once you approve the incoming request you can print the shipping label directly from SwapReads or handle the shipping yourself — whichever works best for you. Pack the book securely, send it and mark the package as shipped.
Or just use the tracking number, which you'll receive once the book is sent. When the book arrives, mark it as received to indicate that everything went well.
