Is this book I received mine now because I planned on giving it to someone?

It's yours.  You can do whatever you want with it - keep it on your personal shelf forever, give it to a friend, repost it here after you've read it...

and remember that when you post and mail books, you will not get your books back.

No need to feel guilty if you don't repost a book you got from PBS.  The only rule about that is that you can't use PBS as a source for books to sell elsewhere. But you can trade them on other sites (I do this with books that become unpostable), give them away, trade them in the used book store, keep them or donate them to a thrift store.  There are some members who never send any books out and just buy credits from other members who earn more credtis than they can spend.

Welcome to PBS Lillie!  The books are yours to do with as you wish!  With the exception mentioned by Mary, as a dealer using PBS as a source of books to sell elsewhere...dunno the exact wording used in our membership agreement.
