I've been swapping for a month or two now, but am new to the forums, so please bear with me.  I have a few brand new book club journals (spiral-bound) that I picked up in clearance at a bookstore when I was a brand new member, not sure at that point if they were postable or not.  I'm going under the assumption that I cannot post them because they are considered journals.   But they are brand new & really quite nice journals...so I'm thinking surely someone would like to have them.  What are my options?  Thus far, I've only done strict 1-for-1 trading because that's what I'm familiar with, but can I offer these up without posting them on my bookshelf, but still ask for a buddy credit (or however it is you refer to that...) for them?  Thanks for any replies &/or input!  :')

You cannot ask for a credit for anything other than a book here. What you can do if you want to is offer it free with an order from your shelf. I dunno how well that would work for you since it wouldnt be considered media. You wouldnt be able to use the media rate so it would hike up the price of postage in a package considerably.
