I have this RC  For Charlie bone books only  please please please make sure they are 7.5 inches high and 5.25 inches wide. I also need them to be the ones from either Orchard Books or Scholastic.  I hate to be picky but these are for my Grandson and I would like them all to be the same. 

I have had the RC for over a year.  I just recieved a book from the Charlie Bone Series that was on my wish list that is 8.5 X 6.5.  I pm'd the member and told her about my rc and ask for my credit back. She said pm that No special request conditions came up when I sent you the book. I entered the ISBN as it was listed on the book. I would be happy to refund your credit if you send me back the book.

I said I would be happy to return the book if she would send the extra credit for the return postage she replied As I said earlier I did not get a restricted message telling me there were restrictions on the sale - you should take that up with paperbackswap.com. I am not giving you 2 credits for the book. I listed the book as described and you requested it. If you don't want to return the book then I am not giving you your 1 credit back.

Do RC come up when wish list books are posted??? If so I have never seen one.

I will of course chalk this one up to OH WELL

If I am understanding your question, when I have posted books that are WL & someone has an RC, their RC DOES come up.  I had a book that I wanted to post to someone's WL & I spent a few days to hurry & finish it since only one person was wishing for it.  Unfortunately when their RC came up, it said they wanted the dust jacket to be in good condition & the dust jacket I had was bent up so I couldn't send the book to them anyway.

So yes, RCs show up when people post WL books.

Julie, yes you are correct.  If you click "Details" in the Transaction Archive, the first thing that is listed are any requestor conditions that were in place.

Bertie, what does your transaction archive show for the book?

OK I checked when we lost power I guess things got turned off and I didn't check. I have turned everything back on.  I guess I lost this credit. I will just add this one to the donate pile that is going to the book place.  Live and learn LOL


thanks for all the help

Bertie, if it was a WL book is anyone else wishing for it? You could repost it and get your credit back.

Probably obvious - but, I think an apology of sorts to the sender is warranted.

 To avoid scary thoughts by other members, you losing power would not turn your RC's on or off.  They are stored on the PBS server.  We all make mistakes, and I may make more than most........
