3 for 1 sale until December 25 - over 140 quality books. Fiction (contemporary, historical, prehistoric, and science fiction, poetry, history, psychology, spirituality, greek mythology, classics, politics, travel, computers, health and more). Mostly paperback, but some hardback - some unread and in perfect condition, though a few have underlining (I'll let you know which ones if that's not ok with you so you can decide if you still want them). Order one book the regular way and PM me directly to let me know the additional one you want. (I don't check this forum regularly)

Hi! Just so you know, underlining is *not allowed* in PBS books unless they are textbooks (which doesn't sound like the case here). Therefore, if someone gets one of those books (they are not required to ask you in a PM "Is this one underlined? Is this one underlined?"), they may report it as a problem to PBS and you may have to refund their credit. Best to remove those from your shelf and offer them as freebies with purchase. Just hoping to help!

* ETA: You won't be "forced" to give back the credit, I mean, but the person will probably ask for it, and not be happy b/c they won't be able to re-post the book. But no, no forcing being done! :-)

I always let people know if books they request are underlined, and cancel the request if it's not ok with them so there's no problem here. I own at least 1000 books that have some underlining, as most of my books are resources in my teaching and writing and I copy over the underlining afterwards. I'm not about to sacrifice the quality of my work in order to have an underline-free book for trade.

On the other hand, many of my books I use in my teaching, so does that qualify as a text book? I teach 18 different courses..........PBSwap doesn't define what they mean by a textbook.
