Mystery Reading Challenge Prize List

Prizes credits!

The following folks have unredeemed prize credits to use up.


You can choose a prize one of three ways:
Option 1: I have over 200 books available on my public Paperback Swap bookshelf (Not all are paperbacks!). Browse my Paperback Swap Bookshelf to see if you would like one of those. If so, do not request it through Paperback Swap. Request it directly from me by email.
Option 2:I can have Paperback Swap send you any posted book they have listed, no matter who posted it, and even if you are not a member. It's just amazing. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Paperback Swap Search Page.

  2. Now this is critical: Set the pulldown menu to Posted Books as shown. (Otherwise the search will show new books offered for sale). Posted Books means used books members have posted as available for swaps.

    example only! non-functional static image

  3. Enter your search terms.

  4. When you find one you want, note the author/title and email it to me, along with your mailing address if this is your first prize claim.

  5. I notify PBS to send you the book.

  6. When you get it, let me know, so I can click the receipt for the sender so they get credit.
