Want to trade 3 or more books for 1 credit.  Let me know how many books you would like, and I will see if I can find the same number on your shelf, assuming you would honor the same deal.

Have you thought about becoming a boxer (BOB)?

I have, but do not like the way the search is organized.

I would love to look at your bookshelf but you're on hold.

This is pushing the rule that the only way you can swap books for books (rather thank books for credits) is if you are both boxers.

I'm a little confused about what your offer is.  Are you offering 3 books for one credit, or 3 books for 3 books?  Trading books for books is not allowed unless you are a boxer.

I am offering an equal number of books from each member, with one credit exchanged from each member.

He may be pushing the rule, but he's neither bending nor breaking it. As long as credits are exchanged there's nothing wrong with offering each other equal deals, and that's all he's asking. He will make you a 3/1 deal on hiis shelf, if you will make him a 3/1 deal on your shelf. Or however many.

I've done reciprocal deals several times - often if you like several books on a shelf, odds are good that the parties enjoy some of the same genre and a mutual deal is beneficial to both parties.
