I am helping one IB student with her summer reading. Instead of trudging to the bookstore or library to get the books that we needed, I tried a website for trading paperbacks that’s at http://www.paperbackswap.com.

As the name implies, you can list your books on the site and trade them with other users for free. When you list 10 books, you get two free credits. Books are generally one credit each, so I was able to get one of the two books that I needed for free. (They didn’t have the other one, but I’m not complaining.)
The site is also great way to get rid of a lot of books that I no longer want. The site has a nifty system that lets you print out postage and labels for the books that other members want, so you can mail the books you’re trading to other members without making a trip to the post office.
I know that this post has very little to do with Tampa SAT tutoring, but I thought the resource might interest those who want to save a little money on summer reading books.
