I've been a member for a while but just posted my first books to "trade." I posted 11 books but only 9 show up in the "public" listing. Any reason? Also, I posted a book by Pat Conroy about his basketball-playing years. I just discovered it has water stains. I know Conroy is popular, but should I delete that book from my list?

Do you have all 11 books showing when you view your bookshelf? Two might be on a wish list hold.

I'd delete the book with water damage as you can't post it for a credit as there are standards for posting books.

if the book with water stains is a WL book, you could list it in the book bazaar for a credit.

It sounds like you need to review the posting guidelines.  The water stained book should not be posted. 

The other 2 books are probably on WL hold for someone.

Just in case take a look at My Account - Main.  My Account is up at the top and Main is the first thing you'll see.  When you open it you may see a tab that says Wish Lis Hold since the two books aren't showing up on your shelf.

Yes, take the book with the water stain off your shelf - that's a no-no here.  You can offer it in Book Bazaar fondly known as BB.  What most people do is offer it free with another book from their shelf.  The only place where you can ask a credit for what is considered an unpostable - water stains are unpostables - is in the BB.  It can't be on your shelf.

I hope this helps.  If you have any other questions feel free to PM me and I'll try to help.
