Bookmooch.com has members create an inventory of the books they want to give away and a wish list of those they want to own. They can choose new reading material from a library of “some 75,000 titles,” all made available by other members. Membership is free, but you can’t obtain a book until you’ve contributed one.

Bookins.com makes exchanging “hassle-free.” You’re not required to find a trading partner, each book costs only $4.49 regardless of weight, and the site covers “postage, shipment tracking, and even the costs of replacing lost or damaged books.”
