barter.li - Share and barter books on the free book exchange which connects you via a chat messenger. barter.li is not for free ebooks, just good old paperback books!
Discover books and people around you, find book collections of other people, chat with them and exchange or sell your books. Create crowd sourced libraries for reading books in every corner of the world.
barter.li is an app for book lovers. Remember those cartons full of books you have lying on the book-shelves, in the garage and cupboards? You can simply upload your books by scanning the barcode at the back of the book or manually entering the book title.
Security and privacy: We never share your actual location with others. Only your profile pic, name and about me is shared with others. You get to see the book owner's profile, chat with them and meet only at a preferred public location e.g. a cafe.
We at barter.li are motivated by a desire to bring a billion books back into circulation which otherwise just adorn bookshelves. We want to create a sense of community, promote literacy and the love of reading by creating a free book exchange which is for the people and by the people.
barter.li is a non-profit which aims to enable sharing of a billion books across the globe.
Find books nearby, chat & meet new people to share and trade books.
