More ways to access great books during the age of COVID-19

I recently learned of more great ways to access books these days, and a wonderful way to have books arrive in your mailbox! (and support the Long Island Post Office)

Paperback Book Swap

Here’s how it works:

  • It’s easy: List books you’d like to swap with other club members.
  • Once a book is requested, mail it to the club member.
  • In return, you may choose from 1,206,450 available books!
– You pay postage for the books you send out; the books you receive come to you postage-paid.
– Books you request are yours to keep, or swap again!
And it’s not just paperbacks – it includes hardbacks, DVDs, etc.
Another fun one is The Page 1 Book Subscription – a personalized service that hand-selects books for you based on your preferences and our knowledge. You receive a new book every month. This bookstore, out of Evanston, Illinois, has a fun website, regardless of whether or not you subscribe to the service. Sounds like the perfect gift to me!
In any case, no matter how you receive your books, happy reading!
