Hello, I'm new to this site, and I'm glad I found it.
 I want to complete my Agatha Christie paperback collection for reading, and there are still a few I don't have. I'm looking for:
        A Murder Is Announced
        Third Girl
        The Adventure Of The Christmas Pudding
        Poirot's Early Cases
        Miss Marple's Final Cases And Two Other Stories
        Problem At Pollensa Bay And Other Stories
        The Harlequin Tea Set
        While The Light Lasts And Other Stories
        Surprise! Surprise!  
        Three Act Tragedy ( Murder In Three Acts )
   Hope you have what I'm looking for.
Thanks! ... John

Hi John,

Welcome to PBS. I hope that you can find the books that you are lloking for but you can only use credits to trade for a book. You cannot pay for a book or offer to pay for a book as it is against the rules. I would hate to see your account closed down for this so I just wanted to let you know.

John, I just did a search and many of the books you are looking for are posted here at PBS. PaperBackSwap is a swapping site, where we trade books with other members. This is not a site to buy books.

I suggest you post some books you would like to let others enjoy, and if you post 10 books, you will receive 2 start up credits to begin requesting books. You can do a search by Author in the Search section, and I think you will be pleasantly surprised how many Christie books are available here.

Welcome to PBS. I hope you enjoy swapping books here.

What others have said. Once you receive a book from PBS, you CAN keep it for yourself, you aren't required to swap it again after reading it. But you have to post some books to begin trading, and probably should read the Help Docs a bit as to how the site works. If someone reports you to the powers that be about offering to purchase books, your account will likely be closed and I'd sure hate for that to happen to ya just because you didn't know.
