Hi! I know there was thread for this but I can't find it. I would just like to welcome all the new members and hope that you pop in and say HI!

This is also a great way for people to see your bookshelf. We're all nosey and love to check out everyone's shelf.

I hope you are all enjoying this fantastic site! Don't forget, we were all new once. Everyone is great at helping newcomers and answering your questions and if you see the blue TG button under someone's user name feel free to shoot them a pm if you have any questions.

Welcome to PBS!

Hi Kathi!

  Thanks for the warm welcome.

I am a "newbie" so I am trying to set up my icon and pictures but it keeps spitting it back out at me....oh, well eventually!

Very nice to meet you and thanks for having me!

I guess I'm not such a newbie anymore. I joined in Feb of this year, and I've learned a lot and have had great fun here.

Welcome Newbies!

Thanks for the welcome Kathi!  This is certainly an awsome site...I wish I knew about it sooner!  I pre-ordered the new release of War & Peace which I'm expecting to by tomorrow.  Mmmm...wonder if I can finish it before I receive my 1st PBS book? LOL

Wanted to drop by and say Hi!  I joined a couple of weeks ago and I've already sent out quite a few books and gotten some new books.  I thought it would be awhile to see the full benefits to the site but it hasn't taken long at all.  I'm in love!!!  I have already bugged one friend into joining and am working on some more.  This is a great site filled with my kinda people!! ; )

Hi,

I'm pretty new, about 2 weeks. I've received my first two requested books and have had 9 books requested from my list. I love this site. It reminds me of ebay before they took all the "personality" out of it. It may be more efficient that way, but I miss the personal  communication. This is so much better and so much fun.

Thanks for the welcome! I've tried posting to these forums before but everything comes out in one long run on paragraph and I can't figure out why. I've even gone back and edited them and put in extra returns and on my screen they look fine before I post them but on the forum they are practically unreadable. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm on a Mac using Safari so that may be my problem. Other than that I LOVE! PBS. I shippe dout over 50 books my first week and love finding a new book in my mailbox every day! jan

I love looking through new bookshelves!  Rose, you're my kind of reader! I already ordered two books from you. If you're interested in doing any deals (2-for-1) PM me - you have a couple more I'm interested in as well! Actually, several more! :)

Also, with your shelf you might want to introduce yourself over at the chicklit forum!

Well, off to go through other new shelves! :) And welcome everyone!

Another newbie wanting to say "Hi!" I'm so glad to have found this site! I've only been here a few weeks and have already sent out quite a few. Since all the books I've listed were ones just "hanging around my house gathering dust", I think I'm doing pretty well! I'm really glad to have a place to get rid of books I'm done with and know that they're going to people who really want them. The fact that I get something back in return is a much appreciated bonus! This is much better than just dumping them on the local charity which, around here, always seems to have more books than they can handle! I'm passing the word about PBS around my very small community. Hopefully, more will join, and I'll get some referral credits! :)

Welcome Newcomers!

I am so thrilled that you all are lovin' PBS! It's such an awesome idea and everyone that I have met here is just wonderful! It's like having friends around all the time! I don't know about anyone else, but I am about the only reader in my family, so it's really nice to be able to share books with others of a similar mind.

I hope you are all finding everything and that if you  have any questions you ask your tour guide or you can ask anyone with the blue TG button under their name. They will find the answer for you. There's also a live help button if you have any problems. Please only PM one person on the list. And give them some time to get back to you. Sometimes the questions aren't easily answered and we gotta find the answer or check with the other TGs. It's live help in that you actually deal with another member, but it's not necessarily real time. We try to get back within 15 minutes, at least with a "I'm checking into it for you" or something like that.

Don't forget to check out the genre forums and the individual state/city forums! Oh and the Games!  That's my favorite spot.<G>

Have fun!

Tami, you can do an author search to find books you haven't read or that you want. The search button is at the top of the screen, 2nd grey button from the PBS logo. You can search by author or title. You can also check out under the hood. That is a new feature which shows all the books being posted in real time. It's at the bottom of the screen.

Don't worry! You'll figure it out and be swapping in no time!

Hi, Kathy.

I joined a few weeks ago. I already ordered one book for my son and am going to the post office tomorrow to mail the first book to leave my bookshelf. Maybe this site will encourage me to rethink all the books I keep that I will probably not really read again.

Mostly, I've enjoyed building the "books I've read" list and checking other people's reviews of books that I've read.

It's just nice to know that there are still plenty of people who read!

Lauren

Hi!  I have been a member for a couple of months and just recently started posting.  Thanks for inviting me to show my bookshelf.  I look forward to swapping with each of you.

Hi and thanks for the welcome!  I too am loving the site.  Joined about three or four weeks ago.  Have sent out a ton of books, gotten several and looking forward to more on the way.  Wish I'd found you guys a lot sooner!

That's what all the true addicts say Ginnie! LOL

I go shopping  to look for WL books for others, not just myself. And I'm just as happy if I don't find one for me but I find some I can post so someone wishing for it will enjoy it.
