This is my favorite forum on PBS and I enjoy the discussions we have. But there seem to more and more threads posting books available.  Maybe everyone doesn't know the rules.

>>> From Help Center >>>>

We ask that members give thought to the appropriateness of their topic for the forum in which they post. It works best for everyone if questions are posted in Questions About PaperBackSwap, USPS issues are posted in USPS Postal Regulations, games are confined to Games, etc. Topics advertising your bookshelf should NOT be started in any forum but the Book Bazaar. Keeping "deals" and the like confined to the Book Bazaar not only unclutters the other forums, but also allows members who post deals to be sure that their deal is seen, and members who seek deals to find them. We have created enough forums to allow a place for anything our members might like to discuss.

>>>>>>>

As a compromise to allow offers to be posted inside a topical discussion forum, some have one or two specific threads for books available/deals. I haven't seen the stated rules change yet allowing that, but everyone seems to have accepted the practice. Here in Paranormal, we have ***Paranormal Book Deals***  as a pinned thread at the top and [Month] Wishlist Books Available thread that gets started each month.
