Hi - my name is Richard Pickering and I'm the Founder of PaperBackSwap. I have two kids and reside in Atlanta, Georgia.

I came up with the idea for PaperBackSwap because of all the traveling that I used to do for business. I found that there was no easy way...

 It's easy to make friends at PaperBackSwap!

Member Testimonials

I have been a member for 15+ years. I always check the site before purchasing a book and have often given books as gifts after getting them from paperback swap. We have traded homeschool textbooks, fiction and non-fiction reading and then reswapped after we were finished with the books. So handy and convenient, plus the 50¢ prices can't be beat!!

Hey, I'm Ben from Athens, Georgia. A friend recommended PBS to me several years ago, I think PBS calls me a charter member. I was never much of a reader until PBS. Many of my friends suggested I become a tablet reader, but I need the books on my book shelves. They are my trophies, reminders of the challenge!
