I just re-posted a book to my bookshelf and discovered something interesting.  After it was posted, I clicked on the title and saw that it was listed as for sale for $ + 1 credit.  I know that when I originally chose the book, it was a swap not a purchase.  Does anyone have an idea on what might be going on?

After going through my whole bookshelf, there is the only 1 book that this has happened to.

Usually there is a button to order the title from Amazon.  But if that title and ISBN are in the PBS Book Market then that replaces the Order from Amazon button.

That probably means it's available for sale (new book) in the PBS Market--which is a relatively new feature. Sometimes people don't want to wait for wishlisted books or want to assure they get a clean, new copy, so this tells them, when clicking on book details, that it is available in the PBS Market.

Members can still order it from you for the usual 1 credit should they want to, so it doesn't have anything to do with the copy you posted at all.
