PBS News: MSN top 100, Shop Amazon, Gracious Granny Memorial

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

MSN.com thinks we’re tops! Not to brag or anything, but… PaperBackSwap made MSN.com’s top 100 most useful sites on the internet! MSN.com reporter Liz Pulliam Weston compiled her list of “top sites for finding deals and freebies, the best advice for tackling financial problems and tools to make your life simpler and easier.”  We agree that swapping is an easy, economical and green way to get books (and DVDs and CDs).   See the whole list.

Shop at Amazon?  We’ll hook you up. At the top of every page on the site now this familiar icon is there to remind you that any of your Amazon purchases will support PBS if you start on our site and get to Amazon that way.  If you are going over to Amazon to shop, just click the link at the top of the PaperBackSwap page, and support the club with any Amazon purchase you make (excluding e-books).  If you start at PBS and put items into your cart, they will “count” if and when you eventually buy them.   So start your shopping trip with us; every little bit helps!

Gracious is the word! Thanks to all of you who have donated to the Gracious-Granny memorial.   We all miss LeAnne, who was one of our wonderful Tour Guide Assistant Coordinators.  The family of LeAnne has chosen the recipient of the books – a very rural small school in Shamrock, Texas.  If you haven’t donated yet, be sure to drop by the page!  You can also check out the new photos of LeAnne and her family, and leave well-wishes for the family, there.
