I have multiple copies of some elementary level children's books (6 to 10 copies) and I'm not sure how to post them. I would send a set for one or two credits, but I'm just not sure how that works. Directions, advice and/or suggestions anyone?

Hi Susan!

I believe that you cannot post more than one copy of a book to your bookshelf if it has the same ISBN number.  You could handle this a couple of ways.

You could post one of them to your bookshelf and then if somebody requests it, offer to send them another one for free or just surprise them with it.

Another way to do it, would be to advertise these books and a special (2 books for 1 credit for example) in the Book Bazaar which is another discussion forum.

You could also post something in the Home Schooling forum since there may be some people in there specifically interested in that type of book.

Kimberly is right on the money....you can only post one copy at a time but you could go into the Book Bazaar forum or the homeschooling forum (if appropriate) and let people you know have so many copies of the book and would be glad to offer a deal

Susan, are you really in a hurry to get rid of these books? If not, I wouldn't post them in the Bazaar right away.....I'd just put the duplicates aside and keep posting them, as many children's books will be requested fairly quickly.

Having a stash of desirable books is a good way to build your stock of credits, then you'll be able to request more books!

I realize this may be a bit contrarian, but if the books are in good condition, you have an opportunity...
