How do I find out how many credits the set of 6 Golden Books will be? I do not see the amount of credits required when I search it or wish list it

ISBN 0375826769

I want to post it actually and want to see if it is considered a set for 1 credit or if each book is 1 credit? I may just list them all seperately then maybe. I dont know. I am just trying to figure this out.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

If I post them individually I will probably do a deal on them...the set is heavy and weighs more then most hardcovers...so will need to think it through. No one has it WL so I have time to think! Thank you for getting back to me.

The ISBN brings it up as a boxed set. And when I looked it had 1 wisher.  1  ISBN=1 credit

If the books don't have individual ISBNs, you can still list them individually using the Post Books Without ISBN page.  But as stated above, they need to be posted individually in order to get more than 1 credit.

Like the others have said, if you post it as a Set, using the ISBN for the set, you will only get one credit for sending out the set. 

OR you can list the individual books separately, if they have individual ISBNs or using the Post A Book without an ISBN feature if they don't have individual ISBNs, but you risk breaking up the set and having to send books to different members if you use this method

OR you can post in the Book Bazaar discussion forum offering the set for X credits (whatever amount you determine, up to a max of the number of books in the series -- you can't ask for more than 1 credit per book) offering to send out the set to whoever PMs you first  who is willing to "pay" the credits you are asking for the set.  This method is great for saving postage costs and not having to break up the set, but the disadvantage is that not all members look at the forum discussions.
