Hi All,

I recently joined Bookcrossing, but I was wondering if PBS does not want us to trade books that have a Bookcrossing sticker or label inside them? If anyone could fill me in I would appreciate it!

I've received Bookcrossing and other books of that type.  The rules say they're OK, as long as they follow the rest of the guidelines:

BookCrossing books: Yes

  • BookCrossing books may have stamps or stickers/decals and they may have writing inside the covers or flyleaf or page edges.  Members receiving BookCrossing books are not obligated to "journal" them at BookCrossing.com, and PBS members may choose to keep the BookCrossing books they receive.  BookCrossing members who Post these books at PBS must accept this.
