This is a fun change of pace.

Are you selling them for credits?

I'm interested in Goodbye Mr Chips and maybe a few of the old mysteries on the list.

I hate to even ask, but are they very musty?

I dont think they are musty at all. They are in pretty good condition especially considering how old they are. I would like to get credits for them. Let me know which ones you would like. Any books that dont meet your expectations of quality you dont have to credit me for them.

Great.

I love finding old books on here for a change.

How about Good-bye Mr Chips and Poems by Bryant for 4 credits?

Does that sound good?

Mr G, send me your address in a PM and I'll mail them to you. 2 books=2 credits  but please dont send me any credits until you get the books and are 100% pleased with them

Great.

I didn't know about that rule.

I'm used to the book swap where I often get 3 for 1 and the like - didn't know it couldn't go the other way.
