It's against PBS rules to ask for free books.   You should remove your post before PBS sees it or you risk having your account suspended.

I've seen a lot of literature come in pamphlets that are not postable here. I think this post would be just fine as long as you are specifying literature that falls into these catagories...



Leaflets or pamphlets or booklets** without ISBNs (other members complain at spending a credit for these)

**A leaflet/pamphlet is an item with fewer than 20 pages; a booklet is an item with between 20 and 50 pages that is not a children's book. Children's books often have less than 50 pages and are not considered booklets just because of their short pagelength. 

  • Brochures/Promotional "first chapters" of books - these are not complete books, even if they have an ISBN
  • Books that originally had accompanying media material, if the accompanying media are not included.
  • ARC's
  • Magazines
