Book Lists - A Great Way to Find Book Recommendations from Your Friends!

Book Lists Instructions
Sample List

PaperbackSwap "Book Lists" allow members to create collaborative (or personal) lists of books which others can watch, comment and vote on. The two main places to look for lists are individual member profiles (for lists created by that member) and the various tabs above, on this page.

This page is accessible from the Community menu > Book Lists option. You may also choose to go directly to another tab on this page via the Community > Book Lists submenu.

List Types -- There are three types of Book Lists you can create:

  1. Open lists are collaborative book lists. Any logged-in member can add books to an Open list, regardless of who created it.
  2. Friends lists are collaborative book lists to which only you and your PBS friends can add books.
  3. Closed lists are book lists to which only you can add books.
  4. Note: There are no private lists. All lists may be viewed by the general public.
