Resource: is an online service that enables users to trade used books with one another, for only the cost of postage.  Participants list the books they want to trade, and requests for books are automatically matched with offers.  This site is one of the better services of this type, with an easy-to-search database and the option to wish-list titles that are not yet available for trade.  Paperback, hardback, and other media are available through the service.  There is also a “cash” option for those who don’t have any books to offer.

Predictably, it is usually lower-value items that come up for trade — more expensive titles are likely to be listed for sale, or to have a long wait time on a swapping site.  Still, if you’re not in a hurry to get a particular title, is a low-cost way to build your library.
