In case you missed the announcement in the Newsletter:

We're happy to present the 2016 PaperBackSwap Easter Egg Hunt!

Starting today Monday, March 21st, 2016 at 10 AM ET, there are 15 Easter Eggs placed on random pages across the site - everyone will be able to collect all 15 eggs.

It's easy to play! Just find an egg (it can be anywhere on a page, on any page) and click it to add it to your basket. You can collect up to 3 Eggs per day, each day (and then on Friday the limit will be removed so people who start late or who can't log in every day will still be able to find all the eggs).

After the Hunt is over, a winner will be selected randomly from the baskets that are most-filled, and that person will get a NEW Wish List book. There will also be a Quick-as-a-Bunny prize (of a NEW Wish List book) for the person who gets to the maximum fastest. You can read more about the Hunt here.

The Hunt will end at midnight (the end of Sunday/beginning of Monday) Monday, March 28th, 2016, and the winners will be announced in the day or two after that.


Good luck and Happy Hunting!

This should help, Alexandra:

Welcome to the 2016 PaperBackSwap Easter Egg Hunt!

  • 15 Easter Eggs have been placed on random pages across the site. Can you find them all?

    • When you find an egg, click on it to add it to your Basket! You can access your Basket from the top of any page on the site.
    • You can find up to 3 eggs per day (until 3/25/2016, when the limit will be removed. That way everyone will have a chance to find all of the eggs!)
      • your limit will be reset to 3 every day at midnight. So you can find 3 eggs on Monday, and then starting at the end of Monday, at Midnight, you can find 3 more eggs; and so on.
      • On Friday March 25th, the limit will be removed (you can find all of the eggs from then until the end Sunday, with no daily limit)
  • The Hunt will begin on March 21st, 2016 at 10 AM ET and close on Sunday, March 27, 2016 at midnight ET (the end of the day).

  • The Prize for two players will be a new Wish List book*!

    • The winner will be selected from all of the completed baskets (or the most-completed baskets) by a random drawing.
    • There will also be a Quick-Like-a-Bunny prize: whoever has found all fifteen eggs earliest also wins!

No purchase necessary - just log in and click the eggs you can find!

 

*or equivalent prize, determined by PaperBackSwap

Alexandra -- once you've found 3 eggs for the day, then no more appear. One of the ones I found today was on a page that I visited yesterday after finding 3, and I know for sure that egg was not visible there then.

We got a question asking if the eggs are on individual Book Details pages, and we told her that They *could* be... but okay, they're not, during this contest. But they COULD be, for future contests. So now you all know that same info.

Happy hunting!

I have found 3 today but I only have a total of 9 so I didn't find any yesterday. I guess I am 3 behind where I should be.

I was never good at "hunting"

I knew a guy who used to go to easter egg hunts just to watch. After the kids left the field he would go across the field and find stuff that was not found and was left behind. He especially looked for hard boiled eggs. He claimed he always found a few.

perhaps you didn't notice this thread is about searching for Easter eggs. The short anecdote I told was meant to add to the egg hunting thought. I didn't think it was necessary to mention the man in question was watching his daughter and was mixing with many other parents and other adults on the sidelines. I live in a small town of about 6 thousand. Morbid thoughts such as yours don't usually come up.

Sorry Charles ,  It didnt mention that he was with his daughter and others...  What I thought was that he was WATCHING kids.

Didnt mean to offend.....I guess in this day and age, being a mother myself , ...well you know.

From what I can tell the eggs seem to be either on the top edge or bottom edge of a page. I don't think they are in the middle of a page or mixed into the content of a page.

There's a link to a list of clues now on the main page.  I still need to find one more egg - grr.   Still a couple more days to look for it.
