Happy Birthday to us, Happy Birthday to us, Happy Birthday dear PBS…..

By Deana (PBSDeana) – PaperBackSwap Team

 

 


That’s right, it’s our 7th birthday!

We’ve passed some great milestones in the last year including 5 million books posted, the 10 millionth book mailed and received, donating over 32,000 books to schools & 17,500 books to the military.  We’ve also swapped hundreds of thousands of books and added plenty of fantastic new features to make the Club even better.   We’ve added new members, made new friends, found new authors we never would have tried, played games, laughed and shared and cried with each other, and learned so much along the way.   We are delighted to see how the Club has grown and evolved in the past 7 years, and look forward to many more years reading together.

It’s no secret that all of our volunteers and members are what makes PBS the wonderful community it is today. In celebration of all of you that have made the last seven years so incredible, the PBS Team is turning the tables and giving YOU the birthday gifts!  We are a group of readers, so of course there’s no better present than book credits!

To enter our Happy Birthday to Us Drawing, just respond to this post and tell us how long you’ve been a member of PBS.  If you aren’t sure how long you’ve been a member, you can find it in “My Profile” under “My Account”.  If you haven’t chosen a nickname or made a profile yet, now would be a great time.  Simply go to “My Account”, choose “Settings” and click “Set Up a Profile”.  You can also see the date you joined on each forum post you write.

We will draw 7 responses at random to receive 7 credits each!  The contest will end on Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at 7:00 pm. We will announce the 7 winners of 7 credits each on Wednesday,  September 7, 2011.  Do you see a pattern here?

Good luck, and go eat a piece of cake for us!
