I am new but am already trading. I thought we get 2 points for a Hard back book. I have request for one of my hardback books and it is saying I will only get 1 point. So don't know how that is working.

It's 1 credit for print books and 2 credits for audiobooks.

One credit per book, regardless of the binding.  Two credits for audio books.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. And I should have realized it but  when I did all the signing in was past my bedtime.

I wish we could get two credits for hardbacks.  They are more expensive to send.  I have several hardbacks that I haven't listed because I don't want to pay the higher cost of postage.

hardback books generally don't cost much more than paperback books ( unless you are posting a dictionary or something to that size). It all evens out in the end since you have the option of ordering harback books from other members.

Hmm.  Never thought about it that way!

I completely agree with Michelle.  It all seems to come out in the wash, and there's usually not much difference in postage.  Also - I've sent/received large pb's that cost more to send then some smaller hardcovers.  I really like the one book, one credit system.
