Has Paperback swap thought about setting up a process for swapping Lend Me nook books? Many of my ebooks purchased through bn.com can be lent once, but I don't know anyone else with a nook, nor a way to get a book in return.

Its been discussed in the Forums and people talked about getting a thread together to do so. I am not sure if it ever got going, I don't pay that close of attention to e-book threads. The site won't become involved with the sharing of these files, but they did say that it was OK for members to use the forums to connect with others.

YOu cannot use PBS to get credits for using the Lend Me Feature. 

I would do a forum search and see if there's  athread going. I'm pretty sure there is a Kindle related thread going on one of the forums.

You could also just start a thread in the CMT or your favorite genres and see if you can hook  up with other Nookers there. I read on one of the threads recently that the lended book is only accessible for 2 wks so that's something you need to consider.

Sara, I have a nook and would be willing to share books with you if we have any common interests. I'm not sure if anyone has set up a thread yet, either. Maybe I will go into CMT and try to set one up.

There is a thread regarding sharing Nook e-books.  http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=192464&l=25&ls=0

One of the posters created a yahoo group for PBS members to lend Nook e-books.  http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nook_lenders/join
