Green Your Reading Habits: Swap Books

Trade books Curling up with a good book sounds like a great alternative to braving the cold, rainy weather this season. Since books and many publications are made of trees, this week's tips are about how to green your reading habits.

Tip #3: Trade Your Tomes

If you have lots of books lying around unused, start a book-swapping club. That way you won’t have to buy new books and you'll have a great group in which to discuss your favorite stories. At book-swapping sites such as Paperback Swap and BookMooch, you can trade books for free with other members as long as you pay the shipping costs. There's also BookSwim (the Netflix of books), which delivers book rentals to your home for a monthly fee.

Tell us: What do you do with your old books?
