Book Deals
Thanks to Richard for telling me about the growing popularity of Paperback The site started four and a half years ago and allows people to swap books. Right now there are 1200 people from Austin who use the site. It's sort of like a Netflix for books only there is currently no fee to join (that may change). You sign on using your e-mail address, and then list the books you're willing to swap. You do have to pay to send the books to other people, but the thinking is that the books you want delivered are paid for by someone else. The average cost is around $3 for shipping.

This same site allows you to swap DVDs or swap CDs.
