Hello people,

Question about having 2 accounts per household.

My situation is that my hubby and his friend have started a side business restoring old cars and building kit cars. On my wish list, I have books on there that they would use for the business...chiltons and the like. If there is a 200 book limit on the wish lists...I would really like to seperate the "business" books from our recreational reading books, but I don't want to have to check 2 seperate emails for posting, accepting and what not. So...When creating the second account, can one use the same email address for it?

Thank you

Kellie

this is what the Help Center says:

PBS is an online bookswapping club.

  • You will need to have a working email address to use the club.
    • Each account may use only ONE email address
    • An email address can be registered to only ONE account.

Kellie--

If you and your hubby want separate accounts, but don't want to check 2 emails, you could set up a separate email account for hubby's and forward those emails to your account.  Gmail will let you do this, as will some other email services.

Cheers,

Catt

also, remember if we ever do get the new WL system I don't think there will be a limit on the number of books.

When they redo the WL, you'll have unlimited WL book slots.  So I would just hang on until then. Although it seems like they've been talking about it since I joined so who knows when they'll finally implement the new WL.
