Neat.  Personally I'm more interested in the DVD version of this club www.swapadvd.com.   I've got copies of Point Break, XXX and The X Files movie that I'm never going to watch agan.  Plus plenty of others I'm sure.  Anyone use either of these services?

Sweet, I'm going to try this.  The wife will like the book swap, she has paperbacks all over the house.

Thanks for telling me about this!  I just sent out numerous DVDs and books earlier today, it seems like a good system.  The only drawback I see is that on the DVD side, most of what is available is total dreck and any movie or television show that is halfway decent has a long waiting list.  I did see numerous movies that have been done on Rifftrax available though (Point Break, XXX, Crossroads, LOTR, House of Wax) so it could be another cheap source of DVDs for those that insist on having an original copy.  My profile on Paperbackswap and SwapaDVD is sheikyerbouti.

Yeah, I only use it for paperback books.  There is a huge selection of those.  They just recently started the cd and dvd parts of the website, so maybe the selection will grow.

I use both http://paperbackswap.com and http://swapadvd.com & have had good results there.   If you don't like the "fixed" pricing at these sites you can try switchplanet.com  for book, dvd, cd, & game trading.   No transaction fees for any of these sites.   Is nice.

edit to add:
Switchplanet doesn't have a lot of book trading, but it does allow you to set up private group trading,  So if enough people were interested we could make a Rifftrax group and have our own cartel of RT titles.

That might be another account I forgot about, but that isn't my account name.  The Truth is Out There though.

Er I'd love to sign up for this but it would mean giving away some of my books and that would never do, they're mine all mine.

Seriously I don't think I own any books I'd want to part with.

Oh no I didn't say that but I've never read a book I've not wanted to keep, I might change my mind on it :)
