Can I swap paperback books?

Sure -- paperback or hardcover in good condition are all fine.

What's the cheapest way for me to mail my books to the people who choose them in the swap?

Books are eligible to be sent via the USPS Media Mail rate, which is roughly $3 per book.

I have a ton of books I'd like to clear off of my shelves -- can I register more than 5?

For the sake of administrative manageability, we need to limit each participant to a max of 5 books for this bookswap. However, there are many places that accept book donations -- check your local library, Goodwill, or other local nonprofit organizations.
