I know we tend to post when the bad things happen. From time to time someone posts the good. Today I felt like sharing the good.

The postman delivered 3 packages today.

One contained a trade size book that looks like it was never read.

Second was a MMP again great condition almost like new.

Third a large package containing 3 unabridged audio Cd's. All 3 still wrapped in plastic. Never been opened.

Most of my trades here have been positive. I had a streak of bad books. I think this happens to all of us at one time or another. But I have to say that for the most part I've had positive trades. Lots of books in like new condition. Something I'll keep in mind if I should get a RWAP book. Hopefully I haven't jinx myself. LOL

I'll join in. = D Yesterday, I received a NEW copy of a book that was on my wishlist. PBSers are usually very generous. I've received more new/like new books than I have unpostables.

I once got a copy of a book from another member, BRAND NEW that had been autographed!!!  The member was at a book signing of some kind and bought a copy of the book and waited in line to have it signed just to swap it.  I couldn't believe it.  My good trades far outweigh my bad ones.  I think I've gotten probably around 300 books from PBS members at this point, and less than 10 have had problems.  Most were in like new condition.

The last 11 books I've received have all been in new or like-new condition. Even the older PPB looked like it had been once-read (though there was some yellowing starting). Overall, the books I've received here have been amazing!

I have recently received 5 perfect HC books, 2 of my most wanted DVDs, and 2 of my most wanted CDs. I have been enjoying some very good Swap-A- karma.
