Giveaway: YA Book Exchange Turns One! Let's Celebrate!

YA Book Exchange is One-Years-Old! 

Let's Celebrate!



Don't know what YABE is? Check out the amazing books up for trade HERE! There's also a Goodreads page as a place for questions and forum.

Wow. I can't believe it's been a whole year. YABE has expanded and grown faster than Nawanda Files -- and we love it! We love hearing about a good trading success story and knowing that the site has truly been of use to bloggers and readers. So thanks to anyone who has used the site. We hope it has been of use to you as much as it has been for us. We love to run it. And we're constantly working on improvements. (Notice the new pub date addition?)

Krista and I manage YABE, and we're excited to celebrate the site's first birthday! How are we going to do it? With a YABE wishlist giveaway, of course. But this is no ordinary YABE giveaway.

It will last longer.

There will be more winners.

And it's just cooler to say YABE is a year old! Woot Woot! 





Giveaway Details


Current Stats: It's impossible to tell the exact numbers of books for trade. Because as most of you know, there's likely four traders willing to trade the same book. But it's probably well over 5,000. And we have roughly 200 regular traders. Remember when there was only 4 names? How far we've come! We've expanded the international category to Australia, UK, Canada, and Mexico, and thankfully for international traders, we have more and more people willing to ship there each day. And we'd love more Australian traders! You guys have slowly been trickling in, but I know you can find a good presence on YABE like the UK and Canada has. Everyday, at least 10 people have successfully traded a book. Our email never sleeps, which we secretly love.

As trading grows, so will the site. But we're not ready to make a drastic layout change yet. I think one day, we may have a forum where you guys can tell us any improvements you'd like seen. If there's something we can do to make trading that much easier, we'll do it! 

Bonus Entries: It's not a requirement to participate in YA Book Exchange to enter, although current traders will receive bonus entries for their support. This giveaway wouldn't have been possible without them!

The Prize: A mystery book from the winner's wishlist. Because this is a very special giveaway, it will last for 3 weeks. And there will be 3 winners! (Three is a magic number! And yes, I'm superstitious.)
