Avid readers are being invited to clear out their cluttered bookshelves and swap old books for new ones they haven’t yet read on ReadItSwapIt.co.uk.

The site, which is totally free to use, has already saved nearly 6,500 users over £250,000 worth of books.

More than 30,000 books have been swapped online since the site officially launched this January and another 30,000 are still up for grabs, with hundreds of swaps taking place everyday in what appears to be Britain’s biggest online library.

Users choose books online in ReadItSwapIt’s virtual library and then post swaps to each other, paying only second-class postage for each book.

Entrepreneurs Neil Ferguson and Andrew Bathgate, 26, set up the site in their spare time, never dreaming it would grow so big in such a short space of time.

The idea for the site came when Bathgate got fed up with books he had already read taking up all the space on his bookshelves. He wanted to give cash-strapped readers a new way to acquire books to read and decided to set up the site with Neil, a computer programmer and friend from university.

"Why buy a book when you can swap it for free? We wanted to create a site that would enable people to gain access to hundreds of books, without having to spend any money," said Ferguson.

“It’s a great way to spring clean your bookshelves and save cash at the same time,” said Bathgate.
