I have over 1,000 books posted that are mainly mystery and thrillers and some romance.  I am starting a church library and have gotten lots of good books from PBS.  What I am lacking is reference book, other version Bibles, a comparative Bible, etc. that are usually thick and more expensive that individuals would not want to trade on PBS.  I will be willing to do an uneven swap or give extra credits for these type books.  The only stipulation I have is that they are fairly new and in good condition.  Thanks.

P.S.  Everything in our house was zapped by lightning and the satellite Internet folks still have not shown up.  So I am at the library doing this.  Just wanted to mention it in case you don't get a response in a few hours don't give up on me.  It's driving me crazy and I'm sure it will probably be after Thanksgiving now.  It's already been 1 1/2 weeks!

I think someone's gonna zap you on this, so you may want to reword your statement (some folks just love to jump on others). You can't give "extra credits" for any books on PBS. The books go 1 for 1 credit, that's it. I'm sure there's wording around the help files and someone will paste it in. Basically, I'd reword and just say "Looking for reference books" and not saying you'll give extra credits, because that makes it sound like you're trying to bump the line. And hey, if you reword it that way, someone with a lot of reference books may even offer you a deal!

I've gotta agree with Heather here on this one.  You can't offer extra credits for books, so you need to remove that line from your posting.  Otherwise, you're alright.

Hope somebody has them for you!
