From the Founders: Newsletter – May 2005

Saturday, May 7th, 2005

They always say, “Find something you enjoy, and then go for it.” We love to read books and really wanted to share our passion for reading. We’re a group of ordinary folks who wanted a better way of trading paperbacks with others. In today’s web-based world, it just made sense to use the internet and form a club. We created PaperBackSwap.com so that members could swap books using a virtual library and the US mail. No gimmicks. No spam. No advertising. No kidding. The greatest reward from our efforts is that our members love the club! Check out the testimonials (or add your own) and see what other members think of the club. Thanks for the kind words!

If you haven’t visited the club recently, please do so. You’ll notice some fantastic changes that have been made: audio book listings, increase in page loading speed, more detailed book search categories, more questions answered for you in the Frequently Asked Question section (special thanks to Jill in Texas for her editing assistance). Also you now have the ability to place your books on hold when traveling away from home or when you are unable to mail books.

Thank you for joining us as we pursue our great adventure of building the world’s largest virtual library of paperback books.
