We remind our members that offering or asking more than "PBS Price" for a book is prohibited; asking for Wish List books in the Discussion Forums (when you are not #1 in the line for the book) is prohibited; and posting your email address anywhere online is a terrible idea.

Barry you've been told you cannot ask for Wish List items, you cannot offer to swap book for book and you most definitely cannot offer extra credits. You can get both your accounts closed trying to arrange this kind of deal.

General Rules in the Book Bazaar:


(4) No asking (or offering) more than "PBS price" for a book. For example, "I will pay 3 credits for this Wish List book" is a violation of this rule, as is "I will send you this book for 3 credits" if the book is worth only one credit on PBS. All bound books "cost" 1 credit each at PBS, and audiobooks "cost" 2 credits each. We don't want a "bidding war" for books, and it is not fair to cut in front of members who may have been waiting for a Wish List book for a long time. That is why offering/asking extra credits is not permitted.


(5) No swapping books-for-books unless the swap is between two "Boxers" (Boxers = subscribers to Box-O-Books). For example, posting "I will send you this book if you will send me that book" or "I will send any three books from my bookshelf for this one book I want" is not permitted unless both members are Boxers. If you are a Boxer, why not peek into other Boxers' bookshelves from the Box-O-Books area to see if books you want are available? You can save a lot of postage and credits this way!

(6) No trying to jump the Wish List "line" by offering or asking for postable Wish Listed books.  Postable Wish Listed books should be posted and swapped "officially".  This of course does not apply to posts advertising an alternate ISBN  (or non-ISBN version) of a Wish Listed title; it is fine to advertise that you have those posted to your account Bookshelf
