Hi! Being a poor student type with little spare money, I was stoked when I found out about this site a few months back. Thing is, I only have so many books to give/send, and I seem to want too many to read. So, if this goes here, good- if it needs moved or is not allowed, move/lock/delete at will.

I'm just looking for some free credits from people that might have too many to know what to do with- even if it is just one each from a few people, I'll be able to browse the listings without running out of room to order things again. it seems like anytime I find something interesting, I have no credits around. So if anyone is feeling particularly kind or totally overloaded with credits, feel free to pass one or two over here.

You might be wise to read this before posting in this forum:    How to use this forum - please read before posting here! team_post.png

The following comes directly from it.     BTW - you are the only one who can delete or change your post


Requests to "lend a credit". Members sometimes ask for credits to be lent to them.   This is okay as long as members follow these rules:

  • The original post in the topic should specify clearly (1) how many credits are needed (maximum 6) and  (2) a timeframe to repay them. 
  • Any members who lend credits in response to these threads must post in the topic that they have given credits, and how many.  
  • When the member who asked for a loan has gotten the credits she needs, she must edit the topic title and the original post to say "Thank you--no more replies needed!" .
  • No member should post a topic asking to borrow credits more than once per month, and can do this a maximum of 2 months in a row.  So it is okay to ask in January and again in February, but that same member cannot ask again after that until April.
  • Anyone giving credits to a member in response to this kind of topic who expects repayment should send a PM saying "I have lent you [x number of] credits - pay me back when you can". 
  • Anyone giving credits to a member in response to this kind of topic who does NOT expect repayment should include in her PM "I have sent you [x number of credits] - no need to repay".
  • These credit loan topics may not appear anywhere but Book Bazaar. The original poster may bump the topic if she needs to only once.
