One of the members here has started a forum on GoodReads (free membership*) for you guys. So you can see comments AND COMMENT ON THEM...  If you are interested, set up a GR account., and you can interact there the same way as here.  Try searching for Paperback Swamp or cut and paste this link:  https://www.goodreads.com/group/invite/157548-paperback-swamp?invite_key=4db90bd7ea41df76e290f3db0a75ad90e082e805&utm_medium=email&utm_source=copypastegroup  just let us know who you are from here, if you decide to use a new name.

  *no, I mean, it is really a free membership. lol.

It would also help if you joined the ExPats Group, so you would understand the origins of the Gator Home.

Is it ok to join even if we are currently on a membership plan? It would be a good way to keep in touch with the ALC members.

Initially I imagined it as a place for the ALCs, because they have been displaced here.  But yes, if you contact me on GoodReads I will add you to the Swamp--just please, to be fair, when you introduce yourself to the site, let them know you are a Limited Member.

There are at least 3 different Goodreads forums that are PBS related ... and probably more. 

PBS Ex-Pats https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/156293-pbs-ex-pats (300+ members)  open to all

Paperback Swamp https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/157548-paperback-swamp (38 members and counting) for ALC PBSers and others with the request you identify yourself as a Limited or Standard member here

Paperback Swap https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/1373-paperbackswap-com (46 members) one that has been on Goodreads since 2007

Mrs Grim did start the ExPats forum where all were welcome.  She created the Swamp for me because I asked for a place where ALC users would be able to trade books and comment on forums, since they can no longer do so here.  So, it was initially a safe plac for them.  It IS now open to all, but to be fair to the original intent, I have asked that people with paid memberships here do mention that when they join.
