I see people asking for book donations in this forum quite often.

It's against PBS rules to ask for free books (even for a worthy cause).

Don't want to see people getting suspended because they didn't read the rules.

There is a way around this somewhat--- you can order a book from someone's shelf and PM to ask for a deal.  I frequently will send extra books when someone orders a book for a kid's program or school.
