I am fairly new only a few months and love everything about this site so far. Here is my question, how does PBS determine the amount of credits given? Is it all books 1 credit and those with audio 2 credits? When you post a  book is there nothing to tell how many credits the book is worth?  Ex: I posted a boxed series of 6 books, am I going to get 6 credits or 1? If a book weighs much more then standard books is that taken into consideration? Have looked through the forums and help topics and cannot find any answers. WOuld appreciate a little clarification please. Thank you.

All books are 1 credit, except audio books (all audio books are 2 credits). If you post a boxed set, you still only get 1 credit. If you want a credit for each book, list each book in the set separately instead of as a set.

You could try advertising in the Book Bazaar if you want to keep the set together and save on shipping (as opposed to the cost of mailing six separate books).

Theresa, if your six  books all have separate ISBN's then post them individually so you can get six credits.  Otherwise, you will only get one credit if it is posted  as a set.
