I am brand new here, just signed up about an hour ago. I am a mother of four, and unemployed. I lost my job in January.  Currently, I don't get to do too many things outside of the home and this gives me lots of time to read and get caught up on books I've been dying to read forever now. It would be so AMAZING if someone, even just one person, could find it in the goodness of their heart to loan a credit to me. That would just make my day! I promise, the good deed will not go undone, and I will be sure to pay it forward in some way for someone else here in the future when I am able. I love the site already!

 

Thank you so much! Take care everyone. Even if I don't receive any loaned credits, it's great to be here! :)

Hi Sarah and Welcome!

I just sent you a credit.  As for the form title says, a random act of kindness.

Just a reminder to everyone - credits are only loaned, borrowed and sold in the Book Bazaar forum. We must follow PBS rules as stated in the guidelines at the start of the 3 main threads.   Thanks to Sarah for realizing this and making note of it in the thread.

Hi Pat,

Sorry about this.  I was just trying to be helpful and forgot the rules for the moment.

Pat,

 

I replied to your PM and again, I am so sorry. I am going to edit my posting now. :) I found out how to get back in here, yay!

Diane - your act of kindness is SO appreciated. I am sorry to have caused any trouble for you in that I asked and you gave, I hope you didn't get in any sort of trouble! Many, many thanks to you for being so nice to me!

 

Sarah

Welcome to PBS, Sarah.  Be sure to check out the Book Bazaar -- lots of folks offer deals on their books, so you can often get 2 books for 1 credit (or better) there.  Also the multiple wish list thread there is great for getting wish listed books.  Happy reading!
