About Us

Share the Shelf is the easy and elegant way to trade your used books. Our goal is to help you replenish your personal book collection with new and exciting reads, as you make connections with other members of the Share the Shelf community.

Share the Shelf is built by Bucket & Shovel out of Columbus, OH, USA. The project was born out of our desire to trade books with our online friends and family. After searching for an existing, elegant solution we decided to build our own.

We have a long list of additional features and improvements in the works. If you stumble across any bugs, or have suggestions to make Share the Shelf even better we'd love to hear from you.

If you're a member of the press and are searching for more information please get in touch.

We welcome you to become a part of this growing community, and hope Share the Shelf can breath new life into your personal book collection as you share with others. Happy trading!
