I know I saw a thread somewhere on how you can use the electronic postage to mail a book from a swap game. I did a forum search and can't find it.

Can someone tell me how you can do this? This would be mailing a book used in a game that is NOT on your bookshelf and was NOT requested from there.

Mary, as long as it's not a WL book...put it on your bookshelf then "Mail to a Friend"  (the friend being your swap buddy, of course).  If it IS a WL book, a lot of people just use a John Grisham, or some other really common book, for just that purpose.

Mary,  Beth is right, I'm been doing that since we got the electronic postage. It wll listed  on the books you sent and in the books you received, but its okay, they will go away when you mark it received.

I thought someone said you can use the paid postage with the Custom DC also. Won't swear to it, but I thought that was said. You can always look and see :)
