My TRB is so big, I don't know that I need to pay to stay.  I hate that I will lose access to Forums, and I have more credits right now than I should, sadly that is postage spent down the drain.

 

ETA - I am staying, enjoy everyone too much and get so many great books!  It was never that the cost seemed unreasonable, I just feel bad that I have so many books on my TBR, I need to get reading.  If I left this site my productivity at work might go up so much that my boss might get suspicious!

I am Gold Key, so staying till it runs out, though I can't recall when that is.  Before this broke I was thinking, gee, I am going to make it to 10 years here.  Whodathunk it would have survived this long?  I think it is worth it.  Most likely I will be renewing at the Standard level.

I am staying.

 Like when the gold key option came out, I decided that I get a lot out of PBS.  I can afford the $18.  As I have mentioned before, we spend at least that much on unnecessary stuff at walmart every month.  $18.00 for a year is not too much to me.  Our internet connection is $50 a month and we don't consider that a luxury at all.  We wouldn't think of giving it up.  PBS is the only thing I use the internet for that is enjoyment, not for work.

I am staying.   I have been a member since 2/2006.   I read tons of books.   I am in a rural area, and have no options for getting used books somewhere else.    I love this site!   :)

There's a thread in the book bazar for those who want to trade credits for a gift membership:

I just renewed.  This place has just become a part of my life.  A small part, but a good part.

Kathleen - thanks for that info, that sounds like the best bet for me.  I have all these credits and I am worried that if membership drops off, who knows.  But a trade sounds great!

I would miss the forums, sometimes I feel like I spend more time reading here on line than I do reading books!

I am staying.  I have already signed on for the $12 limited membership.  I like to post.  Plus I think the whole thing is worth a dollar a month.

I'm here, and like Meg said, sometimes I spend more time here than reading actual books!

I am staying too, the trade for credits post was great, just what I was looing for.

This site suits me, I would never sit and read at work, but I can "read about reading" and research books here while working, it is perfect for me!cheeky

I signed up for the limited deal. I am a little unsure about the 30 swap limit but I think it will work for me. I'll see how it works.

I'm staying.  I have found some great books because of this site and overall it is still cheaper for me to pay the nominal fee and swap here.
