Hi Erin

Welcome to being a Bobber. What you can do to find those book is go to the Box of Books section. There you'll see a place where you can type in titles or authors and you can search the BOB system for BOB members that have those books. Hopefully you can find some. That's where you would find other people who trade BOBs and that's where you can contact them.

Feel free to give me a shout if you need more help. Good luck!

This forum is for trade for books for credits only hon. PBS guidelines state:

Book Bazaar

  • This is the place to advertise your bookshelf and "make a deal"
    • Members often post "deals" or "bargains" in the Book Bazaar, hoping to clean out their bookshelves and earn some credits.   We do not officially support such deals (there is no credit compensation for unsatisfactory or unfulfilled swaps).
    • Members cannot offer or ask MORE than "PBS Price" for a book, but they can offer more than 1 book for a credit
    • Members cannot swap books-for-books in the Bazaar (this is limited to subscribers to Box-O-Books)

It says only BOB members can swap books for books.

What I was pointing out is that members can swap only books for books in the BOB section, not here in the Book Bazaar.

Hey there Erin,

Yes only BOB subscribers that have paid for the service can swap books without credits. That is why the search in the BOB area is set up for you to search by ISBN, Author, Title or BOB member. You will probably have way better luck using that feature.

So Erin, if you do a search for some of the books you are looking for on the BOB pages you may find someone with the books you are looking for.

Or, if you are looking for a few books from one particular author, try to search for that author, it will tell you who has those books and how many they have available that the author wrote. This may help you find someone who has similiar interests and books you want!

Erin, you probably will have more luck using the BoB search.  However, Rule #5 of the BB rules says this:

(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!


Book for book swaps are not allowed UNLESS both members are boxers.  As long as you are only looking to swap w/ other boxers, you are OK. :-)

I'd just like to point out that Erin specifically says she's looking forward to using this feature..so she IS looking for other boxers.  The BB rules do NOT say that you can't look for BoB swaps here. While I agree that using the BoB Search will probably be more effective, she's not actually breaking any rules.

I stand (or sit) corrected, I'm sorry I misunderstood.
