I had a nice conversation on Sunday about PBS and it's sister sites while at a music festival.  I have multiple such conversations year round.  I'm thinking of printing up something small with a little information on the sites. People I talk to get psyched, but will they take the next step and check out the site without some kind of prompt?

I think PBS is the best thing since sliced bread, especially for a bookaholic like me.  I like the thought that I can find an unwanted book a good home and sometimes add to my CD or DVD shelf in the process.

>>How do you spread the PBS love? <<

I will print out the PBS bookmarks.  At the bottom of the page under Spread the Word.  Then I have the added bonus that I might get a credit for the referral, as your referral information can be included.

I print mine on card stock.

I print bookmarks on heavy paper and leave them at book sales or even at the bookstore.  I'm going to print up a bunch and put them in the books that go in my yard sale in a few weeks.  I also have an html tag that goes with my signature on other sites to link to here.

I won't be spreading the word. I haven't had a good experience of this place at all. I'm sorry I joined.

Denise -- sorry you're having difficulty. It looks like you've been here just over a week, and it can be confusing at first to figure out how to find books, how to post books, how the wish list works, etc.

Is there something specific that we might be able to help you with? There are a lot of people here who are happy to help out a new member. We just need to know what's bothering you.

I agree with Cathy. I've been here for a short while and LOVE it! My only regret is not finding it sooner! Since I'm a bit new too maybe I can help if you need something since I just learned how to use this place myself. I'd like to help if I can. What's up?
