Just wondering whether most of you use your own return address when mailing in case a book is lost, or if you use the PBS address for privacy?

I used to use my own address, however, after a chunk of the forums went public, I switched to the PBS address.

In over 200 outgoing books, I've never had one returned.  The small chance that I'd lose a credit is worth the cost of privacy.

Of the 250+ books I've gotten from PBS, only 2 or 3 had the PBS return address on them.   I use my addy.

I use my own address.  It's not difficult for someone to find me if they want to, especially since I have two different businesses that operate out of my home office.  My "view" of the Internet as regards to privacy is that it's pretty much the equvilent of a nude beach.  ;)

I use my own address. If it came to the point where I was concerned about who had my address, I'd stop requesting books.

I use my own address. If people want to get my address badly enough, all they have to do is post me a wish list book. So there doesn't seem to be much point in hiding it on books I sent out.

I use my own address.  If someone wanted to find me I don't think it would be difficult.  Pat

I use my own addy. No sense in being paranoid...

My own address, thing is anyone sending you a book gets your address, so if someone wants it bad enough....using PBS as a return address isn't gonna do sqat.  I'm into my third year here and never have had a problem.
