Just checking if anyone is in the PaperbackSwap Rocks facebook group.  Haven't noticed you.

LOL...I've found some useful things as well as a bunch of sillyness like throwing paper airplanes at folks. 

Marci, it's a group on facebook for Paperbackswap members to promote PBS and to get to know each other.  I think this is the right link: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2470766358

How do you find the PBS group there?

Someone should offer a tutorial of the site.  :)  Maybe I'll go over there later and try to figure it out.

I found Anne and Pamela (or they found me) LOL

It's funny because I know you all by your PBS avatars.  Suddenly names are a mystery to me :)

OMG, something else now to suck up my precious spare time and keep me from reading. I think I'll stay away for now and visit when I have more time to play. It pains me not to be able to spend as much time on PBS as I'd like. LOL!

Marci, I am hopelessly addicted to playing Scrabble on facebook, so now I have two distractions (PBS and facebook) to mess up my days. LOL

I'm over there, but I haven't had much time to play with it yet.  Hopefully soon...

That's my thoughts, too...I barely even post on the forums here these days because life is just nuts and I have too little actual reading time as it is. Sounds interesting though...maybe when I retire it'll still be there...LOL

One of things I like is the iRead application.  You can import your PBS "books I've read" list into iRead.  You can rate books.  You can also mark some as favorites.  And, you can also see what your friends who've loaded iRead have read.  Just a new way to find more interesting reads.

I joined but I can't envision myself spending much time there.

I don't even want to look at it...I'm afraid I might never remove my butt from the computer chair again! I already spend way too much time in this chair.

I enjoy it very much.  I like the Scrabble game.  It's fun to play against other PBS members (keep my brain working).  I also like the iread bookshelf.  It's got a nice feature.  It tells you if your friends are also reading or have read the same book as you.  It's kind of nice to see.

I joined today because I wanted to try the Scrabble game, but I can't seem to find it.

Where, oh, where is the Scrabble? Somebody drop some virtual breadcrumbs and lead me to Scrabble!

Valli, click on Applications in the left hand column.  Then click on Browse More applications.  If you search for scrabble or scrabulous, you should find it.  Or, add me as a friend and then I can invite you to a game :)

I'm there but, frankly, am totally lost.  I pop in when I get an e-mail notice about a new friend or something, accept and then stare at the screen trying to figure out what the heck I am supposed to be doing....lol.

Is there a tutorial/instruction area anywhere? If so, I can't even find that!

Not yet...   I joined Facebook at the urging of a friend (so I could see her wedding pics sooner than later) and have been tooling around ever since.  I'll try to find the PBs group tonight.

I'm a historical fiction reader and am a member of Facebook (and the PBS group)- does that count?  :-)

Found it - joined the group.  Saw Anne was a member, so 'friended' her.  Anyone else out there?
