Hey, I signed up for bookmooch, I have three books to send out and 6.3 credits, but I don't like the site as much (and keeping up with two accounts is hard, I find) I'm thinking about going back to pbs alone.

I was wondering if anybody who had an account on there would be interested in trading me pbs credits for them?

I noticed, also, since I posted this that the cost of buying them are different- $10 for BookMooch, $3.75 here, so it's not a bad deal. (To be fair, the money for credits goes to charity)

I have a bookmooch account, and like you I dont really care for the site as well. It's intresting true, but a pain in the butt to keep track of all the books on 2 sites... Reminds me I need to update my account.

This is taken from a previous post by Robert.

"Here is the PBS Team word on this:

You can sell your PBS Credits here.  You cannot sell anything else.

That means that you could have posted "Anyone want to sell me some credits?  Contact me by PM if so," and then in Personal Messages explained what you are willing to pay.  But you should not post a topic selling anything for credits.  If in PM negotiations anyone was willing to accept the currency of another site for PBS credits, then you could make the exchange.  

It is a small point, but there you have it.  Don't hawk your wares (whatever they are) for credits.   But you can ask if anyone is looking to sell credits, and negotiate payment with them privately."
