Letter from the PBS Team: Newsletter – June 2005

Saturday, June 11th, 2005

So much has happened since our last newsletter. The club is growing by leaps and bounds, adding new members and books every minute of the day! We’ve had wonderful coverage from the media, including NBC News from Boston. You can check out what others are saying by going to the “PR and Media” section of the club.

Thanks to all members that have referred friends and family. By spreading the word, you’re bringing more members and a wider variety of books to the club for everyone. (Results from our BoOk LoVErs’ Referral Contest are in this month’s newsletter.)

The goal of this newsletter is to highlight new features and provide helpful hints so that each member can navigate smoothly through the site and enjoy their book club experience. As always, should you have any questions or comments, please never hesitate to contact us. YOU are what makes this club so successful!

Thank you,
The PaperBackSwap Team

We asked, and you delivered! Thanks to all the members that participated in our BoOk LoVErs’ Referral Contest. We had many members send out emails and links to our site, and they were rewarded with many extra credits. The winning results are as follows:

1st Place goes to Nicole Bradley of Marietta, OH. Congrats Nicole! You’ll be receiving triple credits for all of your referrals during the contest.

2nd Place goes to Pamela Burns of Cherry Hill, NJ. Kudos to Pamela. She’ll receive double credits for all of her referrals during the contest.

3rd Place goes to Pamela Marrache of Menasha, WI. Because Pamela spread the word, she will receive her regular referral credits plus 5 Bonus Credits.

Now YOU Can Have the Last Word: Newsletter – June 2005

NEW – We feature three topics and members focus on them for the entire month. Starting in July, every month PBS will select a Genre of the Month, Author of the Month and a Current Event of the Month. These selections will appear at the top of the Discussion Forum page and are available for comments for that particular month. We challenge each member to “put in their 2 cents” on these monthly topics. Come on and join in the fun. Share your viewpoint and explore other members’ views too.
