What to know more?
We love books*.
We love making friends.
We hate waste.
How does it work?
Enter five books you’re happy to swap, bookpo.st will find readers who own the same ones you do, then show you the other titles they have.
The simple premise is if they liked yours, you’ll probably like theirs.
(You can also search by your country, tag, or just plain old everything.)
You then post one of your books and they post you theirs, or meet to swap your two books. That’s it.
You can start or join swap clubs in your city, get recommendations, and talk books, books, books.
Each swap earns you reputation points, unlocking extra features. The more you engage with bookpo.st, the more books you can list to swap.
It’s like those “also bought” lists, but with real people’s tastes, not purchasing algorithms... and who doesn’t like a well read new friend?
I have a Kobo or Kindle
You can’t exchange books but you can still get recommendations, make and view lists, joining buddy reads, and of course meet like-minded readers.
Every book also has links to the Kobo and Kindle versions..
(*we love reading, ereaders and phones and cereal packets too, but there’s something lovely about a paperback in your pocket)
