I am trying to take the time to read all the stuff on the website to help a new person get started.

Is there an acronym dictionary to help me figure out what is RC, RW, RWAP ???

some I have been able to figure out like WL and TBR, but some I don't understand...

Welcome to PBS Norma!!!

I've heard there may be an explaination somewhere, don't really know where tho.

RC = Requester Conditions

RWAP = (book) Received With A Problem

RW = I've no idea :-)

WL = Wishlist

TBR - To Be Read (pile or shelf)

Hi Norma,

Welcome to Paperback Swap! There is a glossary with common online and site-specific  abbreviations (  http://www.paperbackswap.com/help/search.php?terms=glossary ) that should explain them all.

Still have questions? Please check back. :)

Welcome to PBS Norma. You'll just love it here, I'm sure. :-)

Here are a few that get used quite often here that had me stumped in the beginning:

OOP = Out Of Print

HTF = Hard To Find

UBS = Used Book Store
