PaperBackSwap’s 14th Birthday Contest

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

 

Today, PaperBackSwap turns 14! Happy Birthday to us! And what is a Birthday Party without games?!

Since playing pin the tail on the donkey, or musical chairs isn’t easy to do online, we have come up with a game everyone can play.
We call it Favorites at 14.

Here is how it works:

In the comments here on the Blog, tell us one of your favorite books, title and author, from when you were 14, or thereabouts. And tell us why you liked the book.

It is that simple. On Friday, September 7, 2018, we will choose a winner at random.

The winner will receive their choice of 6 PaperBackSwap Credits, one year of Standard Membership or a one year subscription to Box-O-Books.

Contest is only open to current PBS members whose accounts are in good standing.

 

Good luck to everyone!

 

 

Invite Friends to Join PBS! Earn $ and Spread the Word!

Friday, July 29th, 2016

cup of tea and a book on a table in the library

If someone handed you a $5 bill, would you put it in a pocket and never spend it? We hope not! Yet, some of you are doing the equivalent of that right now, and you may not even know it.

Our Invite Friends program allows you to earn actual cash money for referrals. No joke! Moolah. Green. Bank. Dough. Cabbage. Bread. (OK, now we’re getting hungry.)

Some members who have referred friends after the start of the program in November 2015 have become eligible to claim a cash reward, but haven’t done that yet! Are you one of those members?

You can check by going to the Invite Friends page, linked from the bottom of any page on the site, or click here: Check my Referrals

Scroll down on that page to see your list of referred accounts and if there is a Claim Your Reward button there, click it! Then choose a check mailed to your home, or PBS Money. That’s all you have to do. Could NOT be easier.

And if you don’t yet have cash to claim, it’s easy to get that started. You can Learn More About Inviting Friends in the Help Center. For you, it means a Cha-Ching! of always-welcome cash. For your referred friend, it means a discount on Annual Membership and entry into a world of online bookswapping. For the club, it means more members and more books to be shared with all of us. It’s win-win-win!

Time to Celebrate! PaperBackSwap is 8!

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

 

Today PaperBackSwap turns 8!

 

For those of you who don’t know the history, our Founder Richard Pickering found himself with many many books. Not wanting to throw them away, and quickly losing the battle to store them he first tried setting up a lend-to-friends library. Soon people were leaving more books with Richard.  That obviously wasn’t the answer. He kept mulling over the idea of how to share his books with others who would love to read them. And soon the idea for PaperBackSwap was born.

 

At first the site was a place for friends, and friends of friends to swap books. And it grew and grew and grew from there. Today PaperBackSwap has members in every state, and every US territory across the globe.

 

In what is truly a labor of love, PaperBackSwap is first a wonderful site to swap books, but it is also a place to find friends, community, new authors and a connection to a larger world.

 

For PaperBackSwap’s 8 year anniversary, we asked 8 members to tell us about 8 books that have mattered to them. For the next 8 days, here on the Blog, we will feature a member a day and their personal story of their love of books.

 

And of course what better way to celebrate 8 than with a contest for our wonderful members! Our birthday present to you, 8 book credits to 8 members!

 

To enter our PBS is 8!! 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 8 responses at random to receive 8 credits each!  The contest will end on Saturday, September 8, 2011 at 8:00 pm. We will announce the 8 winners of 8 credits each on Wednesday,  September 12, 2011. 

 

 

Good Luck to all and Happy Birthday PBS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

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!
