Ah, September.   What a terrific month.  Hot days are behind us, cold days are ahead of us, and the days right now are beautiful – worth waiting the whole year for!  It’s a time for new beginnings: School starts again, football starts again, for some the calendar starts again (happy Rosh Hashanah to our Jewish members!).   Why not take stock of your bookshelves and ask yourself that penetrating question: Will I ever read this book again? Are you keeping books just to keep them?  Have they become things to dust? Is it time to pass some of them along to new readers?

We confess: we’re not trying to cure you of your clutter-mania; we just want to help get you your next great read. After all, if you post some of your books here, it will make room for new ones!  And with millions of  “New to you” books available for 1 credit from other members, thousands of new remaindered books and brand-new Super Sellers in the Market available for a pittance, you’re sure to find something you want at PaperBackSwap.

Whatever this month means to you, we hope you set aside a little time for yourself, and for that most wonderful of indulgences…a good book!

During the Dog Days of summer, a reader’s fancy naturally turns to…cool new features for the club!  We’re very happy with the Book Lists and the changes to the Profile page – you have told us how much you liked these and we love seeing the new lists that you create!  We hope everyone gets around to making a profile and creating some Lists.  It’s a great way to find out about books you might be interested in, and it’s fun to contribute to collaborative lists.   You can read all about using the Book Lists by clicking the What’s New link at the top of the site.

We have another feature to announce that is so hot it’s cool! We have found a great new way to get you the books you want – brand new releases, available here, at outrageous savings.   Yes, we said Brand. New. Releases.  You know, those books from your favorite authors… the ones that you put on your Wish List months before they come out, and then splurge on because you just can’t wait …yes, those books!  It’s just another way the club has found to get you your next great read, for less.   More titles will be added frequently. So don’t forget to check the top sliding display in the Market for the current Super Sellers being offered.  They will knock your socks off … if you’re crazy enough to be wearing socks in this weather, that is. 🙂

Stay cool,
Richard and
