Let the Games Begin! Newsletter – September 2008

Part of the fun at PaperBackSwap is trading books, chatting and making new friends, posting on forums and watching your Book Map fill up with lots of red dots. Another part is finding all the entertaining games and contests that are offered daily. Now there is a section dedicated to GAMES. Richard started with his Twenty Question game, and members stepped in and took on the roll of game moderators. So far, we’ve had more than 100 games take place on the site. In addition to games, look for two new contests to be offered in November.

The first game, “Count Your Blessings . . . and Books” will give members a chance to guess the last two digits of the total number of books posted on the site as of Thanksgiving Day 8 pm ET. This contest will be limited to the first 400 members. Contest rules and instructions will be distributed the first week of November.

The second contest, “A Quarter of a Million” offers all members a chance to participate in the fun. In this contest, members will be given chances to guess the exact date and time that a member will post the 250,000th book. Time slots are on a first-come, first-reserve basis. So, get your mathematical thinking caps on and start calculating so that you’re ready to reserve your guesses. May the best “guesser” win!
