I have a 15 book box set but don't want to list them as a set b/c that is only one credit I believe. (firs attempt to use) So I was trying to break the books up and offer two for one credit.  how can I do that?  I have been reading all over this site for the answer and can't find it. :( any help would be appreciated.

You can offer them in the Book Bazaar Forum.  If there are multiple wish listed books in any of the sets, you will need to offer those sets in the monthly Wish List Multiples thread, otherwise you can start your own thread and/or find one of the recurring threads in the Bazaar for set and series like http://www.paperbackswap.com/MARCH-2012-MULTIPLE-BOOKS-SAME/topic/254806/ .

You were probably looking for this help doc:

How do I post my 'boxed set' of books?

If each of the books bears a unique ISBN, you can Post each as a separate entity

  • this way, you will earn a credit for each.

If the "box" holding the boxed set bears an ISBN and the listing for that ISBN is for the whole set, you can post with that number, BUT

  • this way, you will earn only ONE credit for the SET.

There is not a way to post the books individually yet require one member to take all of them and award you all of the credits for the one bulk request.

If you do post the books individually and want to send them all to one member:

  • you can start a topic in the Book Bazaar Discussion Forum to advise members that you have a boxed set.
  • Another member may be glad to learn of this and request all of the books from you using the bulk request "order more books from this member" feature.
