October 31, 2011 marks the day Goodreads will be shutting down their book swap service. BooksfreeSwap welcomes displaced Goodreads swap members and believes its service is the best place for them to find their books new homes. Because BooksfreeSwap requires the recipient of the book(s) to pay the postage like Goodreads swap service, BooksfreeSwap is a natural fit for displaced members.
To make the transition as easy as possible, BooksfreeSwap has added a new “Import From Goodreads” feature. Members will now find an “Import From Goodreads” link in their account. If you are not already signed into Goodreads, it will direct you to the Goodreads site where you will sign in, then the site will redirect you back where you can retrieve your wish list and books available to swap list from Goodreads. The system will first retrieve your list, then ask you to confirm and import.
