There are a lot of books on here that nobody has, so I'm going to open this thread up to those of you who are interested. I'm taking requests for books, so feel free to reply with titles and authors (Book Title by Author Name) and I'll see if I can get the book(s) up on PBS! Please keep in mind that I cannot hold books for you though, as those who have wishlisted them first have priority. Thanks!


If this is against the TOS, please let me know and I'll remove it. Not sure how it could be though. :P

 I don't quite understand what you are offering, Scott. Are you saying you have access to more books than what you have on your shelf, and if ppl will ask for them you will post them? It's very true that there are a lot of books not posted, that's why people have to WL them. I'm just trying to read what your offer really is.

What I'm curious about is that if you've only sent out eight books and you've received four that hardly leaves you enough credits to sell - four to be precise.   I must be missing something?

And yes, also with this post, I'm not sure what you're asking people for. Can you explain in a little more detail?

Yes, I am saying that if someone is interested in a certain book that is not available on PBS I will try to find it, and make it available for them. For instance, you have the book The Assassin King on your wish list. Were you to post it in this thread, I would try to find it and make it available on PBS for you to order.


As far as credits go, the post doesn't say anything about selling credits. That is part of my signature. One's books aren't related to the amount of credits they have as you can gain credits from referrals, buying them, swapping through sites, etc. So yes, you missed that part.

Fifth Chinese Daughter by Jade Snow Wong, there are two wishers for this book and I believe I am the first in line.  If you can find this book and post it, that would be awesome.
