Hiking the Appalachian Trail? A PaperBackSwap t-shirt will keep you comfy and stylish.

Stay-cationioning this year? Don’t forget your PBS cup on the drive…and stick that auto magnet on there while you’re at it!

    We just got back from our trip to Niagara Falls, I wish I had done something for it….:( but I didn’t have any PBS stuff with me. Well it sounds like a fun contest. Good Luck to everyone!!

    Too bad I don’t have any PBS gear! 🙁

    Just got back from Britain a few weeks ago, would have been the perfect trip to do this contest as we were hitting used bookstores all over the south of the country.

    we’ll think of something for this contest, great idea!

    Cool contest… wish I actually had some gear! Where do you get it?

  6. Anne S. (shermtheworm) says:

    I am really disappointed that none of your gear is made of recycled and/or organic material. It is really disappointing when you have the facade of being a “green” network by using the recycled sign. There are plenty of cheap and/or affordable ways to go about this. And I really feel strongly that I should have the ability to filter who requests my book by geographical location so as to decrease my eco-footprint. I know how I can do this with book requests, but there simply is NO OPTION for this when mailing out to others… thanks.

    Okay–I’m joining the 2011 challenge and am anxious to start. As to writers/books from another country, y’all might be interested in Arnaldur Indridason in Iceland and Qui Xaolong – Inspector Chen, China)

    Having found the t-shirts, totes, hats, etc. in the KIOSK section, now I am ready for the trip to Disney in Florida. Wish I had them with me when I was in Cape Cod last week. Well, better late than never. Can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy PaberbackSwap. I have broadened my horizons with the wealth of reading material available. And I’m still listing books, as well.
