I am collecting the DAW books, so I don't tend to save them up.

Currently 167. Somehow, I don't think I'll ever use 'em all, so if anyone wants to buy some, I just set up a paypal account.......

2, I am running a bit low at the moment.  Between moving and not wanting to take excess books with me, and starting law school and having no time to read, I tend to have more books than I can deal with.

I have 17 in the bank with three books in transit and two going out tomorrow. I start to get antsy if my credit count dips below 10 so I'm feeling pretty good right now. :)

19, the most I've had since joining (probably due to my moratorium on ordering books, other than from my WL).

23, but I did have double that until my WL started to send me book after book and I made the mistake of going to the book bazaar!

Well, no one asked about in transit...I only have 2 in the bank, but I have 8 books already mailed and 3 more going out today.

Right now I have 6 and I'm waiting on a wish list hold so that will bring me up to 7.  The book has a wish list of 33 members so it'll be going out sometime this week.  I normally hold 5-10 credits.  I keep them for my own WL...if I accumulate too many I go crazy requesting books.  I'm a book-aholic....so sad......

i'm a newbie here and just sent away for 2 books.  I now have 0 points.  I wish this was a site like Bookmooch where you can get FREE credits for charity angels...yes, free.  I have lots of credits and would gladly give them away!  Not here through and how sad.  Rules were soooo complicated didnt realize I could have label printed and get credits ASAP.  Guess I'll do that next time (if there is one).  Deeply disappointed with this site could there are some good books I would like to mooch (I mean get)

Well, Carol, I just ordered a book from your shelf.

I don't think this site is confusing.  Sure, it's different from BookMooch (which I also use) but there are a lot of features I like better on one site over the other.  I like skipping the wishlist on BM when I see a book I want to read and finding it available, but I also like knowing that here, a lot of books (as long as they aren't completely obscure!) will eventually make it to me on the wishlist and no one can just grab them out from under me.

So, I'm now down to three credits, but I'll get another three back from games when I get around to mailing some books, and then another two are tied up in a book box. :)  I don't order very frequently and my wishlist books rarely come up here, though, so I'm not worried.  I've also sold credits a few times.

I've got 8 credits. I usually try to stay around 25, but I've been ordering more books than usual lately. But I have five books to mail, which should help :)
