Does anybody have any of the following books by Gail Carriger?


If anyone has all three, I'd be happy to give four points for them, rather than three.

Sorry, but want you are doing is against the PBS rules  I believe all three of these books are wishlisted (I know I am on the WL for the last 2) and offering more credits is against the rules

Below is a section from the Help Center.


Offering to "pay" (or asking a requestor to "pay"--see below) more than "PBS price" for a book is not permitted. 


  • If the book is Wishlisted, offering more than the PBS "price" for the book may allow members to leapfrog over others in the Wish List for the book. This obviously is not fair.
  • Even if the book is not Wish Listed, a "free market" system could lead to "bidding" for a book, and auctions are NOT permitted on PBS.
  • One reason is that auctions are subject to state laws, and as PBS members belong to various states, this could be illegal.
  • The other reason is that we want all members to have a fair chance to get books on PBS.  Pitting those who have lots of credits to spare against those who don't have a lot of credits at the time goes against the very spirit of PBS--the fair sharing of books. Everybody equal.
