I am new to this and I have a ton of questions.  Before I start asking all of my questions on the forums, is there anywhere on the site that I can go to find the guidelines or rules and so on?

Hi and Welcome to PBS,

At the top of the page, in the grey tool bar, is a link to the Help Center.  You will find all the how to info there.

Welcome Sheila!

If you go up to the grey menu you will see Help Center as an option. Once you click on that the first option on the right side of the page will be to help new members get started. I highly recommend browsing the Help Center on what can be posted and browsing the forums like you are doing. If you have questions you should have an asigned Tour guide listed in your Buddy List (accessed under My Account) or you can ask Live Help (Under Help Center) or just holler out in the forums.

Thank you so much!  The whole concept of trading books with people everywhere is so awesome, especially with our economy being a mess.  I like to play by the rules and don't want to mess up, so thanks again!

Welcome Sheila.   Sometimes it is overwhelming, even after you read all the rules.   When there is a doubt in your mind about something, go look it up in the guidelines and if that doesn't answer your question, then feel free to ask here.  People on this site are very nice about helping others out.   However, almost everything you need to know is in the guidelines.    I hope you have as much fun swapping books as most of us do.

You should also have a Tour Guide that can answer questions.  Look in your main account, under the Personal Messages tab.  Your Tour Guide will be towards the top of the page in a blue box with a pm button.

Welcome, and best wishes!
