"This is a great site I joined 3 May 13 and I sorted my books and offered about 12 books at 23;OO (11PM), to civilians, and about 30 minutes later I had 2 requests but members were so helpful my assigned guide and others told me what and how to do. Now less than a month later and 20 books mailed I have at stack to read and some fine new friends to "talk" to. Thanks."
"Fantastic site. I just love to read and this is set up so perfectly. I also love the FREE books! What a great idea! Hope this site is around for many years to come because I have not yet scratched the surface on the books I want to read. Much better than 1/2 price books (who only gives a person pennies for any books you try to trade)."
"I often order books for a relative who is disabled and has difficulty getting out or using a computer. It's great! I get a list of titles desired and I browse PBS for them, order books, and send them off to my happy in-law. Saves money too, and the books can go back into the swap after they've been read."
"Love this site.My husband loves it too! Since I don't spend his money going to bookstores for new authors that I end up not liking. If I start something and don't like it, I just put it in my post books and someone maybe will order it.
Everone has different tastes and it seems as soon as I post a book I get a request for it. I love the ease of just putting the book in my mailbox and receiving one the same way."
"was told about this site nearly a year ago. and it is great. I can find all the books I ever could want to read plus now I have a way to past them on so someone else can get enjoyment out of them. Read on everyone"
"This site is a dream come true for me, since I live in a rural area far from any book stores. I love to read, and this site allows me to get books I'd never know about otherwise. So far the other members have been amazing, everyone following the rules and making it a fun place to trade. Thank you!!"
"I've been on several swap sites, and PBS is by the far the best one. It's well organized, the members are not wishy-washy, everyone seems to follow the same high standards that PBS encourages, and what you get is a well-oiled machine that allows for easy & timely trading. There is a wide selection in the book pool, and if you're patient, you do get many of your wish list books granted. I LOVE books and PBS feeds that passion!"
"I discovered this site almost 4 years ago and since that time,I started taking a class that required several books. Found all of them on this site and was so excited as some of my classmates were paying $150.00 or more for the books at a bookstore. Love trading with people and seeing the distance that some books travel."
"I have never found a site with all the books I have ever wanted at little or no price's! I also have a tons if book I have collected over the years and I don't want to toss them now I can send them to people who will love and love them! : )"
"I love this sight! I like that I can read a series in the order it was written. If the nextbook is not available from a member you can order it at a good price. The Wish
lists are great allowing you to order a book when it becomes avvailable and you don't have to keep searching for the book.It gives me a way to recycle my books and try new authors without spending a lot of money."
"I love PBS. Not only have I been able to find some wonderful books, I have also made some wonderful friends. I have told all my reading friends about PBS and they love it too! It's a "Win, Win" all the way around! Happy New Year!"
"I just want to thank PBS for setting up a book donation and dedicating to Sandy Hook School. Newtown has been our home for 35 years and we have been devastated by this tragedy. Please continue to keep us in your prayers."
"Paperback Swap Friends, Thanks so much for getting the School Donation Program up again. I've been saving my credits to participate and I'm glad to read about the worthy recipients. I realize how lucky I was to have books as a child and I wish it could be the same for all kids. Sending best holiday wishes to everyone from Tucson, Arizona."
"I use PBS all the time - as an instructor and as a student I get so many books to use in the classroom as well as send off those I no longer need yet know other students and teachers are looking for. Then in my 'off time' I seek out fun to read books that have nothing to do w/ school yet I simply enjoy a break from work by reading for fun and not paying to buy books at cover prices. PBS is a blessing."
"I love to go "shopping" for books from other members. It's exciting to see if the books I want are available. And I think it's great we can get new books at reduced prices. One of the best things I did was sign up for PBS!"
"Growing up I wasn't a reader I only read what was required reading.. I read a couple of biographies through out the past two decades and a ton of books on The Beatles. For more then 35 years my main interest was anything music. Hundreds of visits to thrift stores, flea markets and rummage sales the book section was invisible for the most part only allowing 50 seconds for a quick scan. It wasn't until about 2 years ago that I started what I now call my love affair with books. The first year my author of choice was James Patters, after watching "First To Die" on Lifetime. In the past year my book collecting has taken on a life of it's own with around 200 books that have now taken over my room. I volunteer for the Friends of the Library at the local library, which is good way to pick up books to swap. Currently my genre of choice is horror. Three weeks ago while searching Youtube I found a news article on PBS before it was over I was a member. I've since sent out 3 books. My first book was one I had been searching for. Everyday I look forward to logging on and checking what books are available. I have recommended this site to anyone who will listen. I just wish I would have found it 2 years ago...."
"I love all books of all genre and am totally obsessed with romance novels. I work daily and never have time to visit the libraries in my area, which I have read most of the books they have. I love this website not only because it it cheaper than spendingh my whole paycheck on books, but also the other swappers are firendly. Since joining at the end of October I have met alot of friendly people that share a love of certain books and authors as well. This site is the best I have ever seen and it is so much cheaper than others."
"I'm a college student living completely on my own so I don't have money to buy books. I live in a small town so the library doesn't have a very large selection, and my school library is even worse.I absolutely love this site! It allows me to get books sent to me that I normally wouldn't be able to find in a library and I get points to request books from sending ones I have which is just the cost of postage. I love this site and has allowed me to continue my reading which I love so much. :)"
"This book club is fantastic! I really like reading book series in the order they are written and this site allows me to do just that.. I am often looking for a book and this site is the only one that helps me find the book I really want. I have referred many people to the club. Thanks again for being such a great book club."
"Welcome to the club, it's great. I have only about 250 books to be read, but I am a voracious reader now that I am retired. I find some new books cheap at 1/2 Price Book Stores, if you have one of those they usually have a couple of shelves in the back, and they're only $2.00. I also go to the Good Will and go through their books and always find something I want to read."
"I have been looking for a book for a long time and looked in bookstores new and second hand and couldn't find it. I thought let me check here and lo and behold I found it!! I will be getting all my books from here from now on. I LOVE THIS SITE!!!!!!!!!"
