I will trade the box set of 3 paperbacks from Phillip Pullman that I do not want to separate for 2 credits.

Includes:

The Golden Compass

The Amber Spyglass

The Subtle Knife

Thanks for looking,

PS:

Never done this before so correct me if I have done something wrong.

I found this in the help center. According to this you may advertise a boxed set in the BB to keep all the books together. It doesn't mention anything about a wishlist.

http://www.paperbackswap.com/help/search.php?terms=boxed+set

How do I post my 'boxed set' of books?

If each of the books bears a unique ISBN, you can Post each as a separate entity

  • this way, you will earn a credit for each.

If the "box" holding the boxed set bears an ISBN, you can post with that number, BUT

  • this way, you will earn only ONE credit for the SET.

There is not a way to post the books individually yet require one member to take all of them and award you all of the credits for the one bulk request.

If you do post the books individually and want to send them all to one member:

  • you can start a topic in the Book Bazaar Discussion Forum to advise members that you have a boxed set.
  • Another member may be glad to learn of this and request all of the books from you using the bulk request "order more books from this member" feature.

I have all three of these books on my TBR pile, and right now, none of them are wishlisted.  So...it looks like she can offer this, doesn't it?

Technically I think it would depend on whether the ISBNs she has on her books are wishlisted or not.  She is offering the books for less  than the number of credits she could potentially get by listing them separately, so I humbly suggest that even if the versions she has are wishlisted it is an honest mistake... doesn't seem to me like this is a woman trying to rip anyone off or bypass any rules.
