Member of the Month – December

Valli A. (ALbookbugg)

Members have been nominating Valli for a couple of years, but the votes came flooding in recently!  Valli is a longtime member who is very active in the Historical Fiction genre Discussion Forum; she’s also one of our Tour Guides.   We got so many great comments about her that we can’t begin to share them all here. Just a SMALL portion of the comments we got:

“She is a great organizer and a very considerate, caring person. I think that I can honestly say that those of us who participate in the HF forum love her. Anyone new to that forum is graciously welcomed by her.”

“She is always willing to lend a credit, send out free books to those in need, or just chat with you if you need some feedback about books in our genre.”

“She…does wonderful, short & quick book reviews. There are many books I have picked up just because she reviewed them.”

“This is my first year at PBS. Valli has been very helpful and made my time here enjoyable.”

“When I have a question, Valli has the answer (or finds it for me). She organizes activities for us at the HF Forum – read alongs and challenges. She spearheaded our 2009 Historical Fiction Challenge, which was a huge success.”

“She has a great sense of humor. She makes everyone feel welcome. We love discussing books, and Valli often leads such discussions.  She’s a natural born leader and worthy of your MoM award.”

Valli, you have a mandate!  The sheer volume of praise we got about you was…historical.  Thanks for doing all you do to make PaperBackSwap a better place.  You are our Member of the Month for December.  Congratulations!

If you have any nominations for Member of the Month, submit them to us here.  Your nomination will not “expire”–anyone you nominate will have a chance at getting Member of the Month if enough nominations accumulate over time. Each month the person who has the most votes accumulated when the Newsletter goes to press gets to be Member of the Month and gets a newsletter mention and a nifty MoM icon to wear on profile and forum posts with pride.  So go for it! Tell us who’s helped you in the Forums, who’s been a great swapper, who in your opinion is a credit to PBS.  We are keeping a list of all the nominated members.  Who knows–one of them might be YOU!

    I am not sure why yahoo sent me over to your but I might as well say I have become actually intrigued by the comments you have aggregated together. How many years did it take so many WWW users arriving to your page? I am pretty new to this interenet thing.
