Alternatives for Displaced Goodreads Swap Members
BooksfreeSwap.com is uniquely positioned to be the best alternative for displaced Goodreads swap members who will see their book swap service end October 31, 2011.
Vienna, VA (PRWEB) October 21, 2011 -- BooksfreeSwap.com, a Booksfree.com company, is a free online book and audiobook swap service that has been watching its membership of book swappers grow rapidly since its launch in May of last year.
October 31, 2011 is the date hundreds of thousands of Goodreads swap members will see their books swap service end. Goodreads, a well-known site for readers to find and share book recommendations, has decided to focus on their core competence and end their popular book swap service.
With the many similarities between the BooksfreeSwap and Goodreads swap services, BooksfreeSwap is a natural fit for Goodreads swap members. The main similarity between the two services is that they both make the recipient of the book(s) pay the postage. Many of the other swap services require the sender to pay the postage.
Several thousand of Goodreads swap members have already made the switch to BooksfreeSwap. "This swap system is growing on me, and I already like it as much, if not more than Goodreads swap." and "I've been here 5 minutes and I'm already impressed with this site!" are just some of the comments BooksfreeSwap has been getting.
To make the switch as easy as possible, BooksfreeSwap has implemented a new feature that allowed Goodreads swap members to import their Wish List and Swap List from Goodreads with just a click of a button. The feature requires the user to be signed into Goodreads and uses their API to pull the lists.
BooksfreeSwap.com is a free online book swap service that allows users from across the country to swap paperback, hardcover, textbooks, and audio books. There are no direct swap requirements, the recipient pays the postage, and shipping labels are printed online. Members of the online book rental service Booksfree.com receive a discount on postage when using the BooksfreeSwap service.
