I would do a 2 for 1 -- just don't know how to handle it via paperbackswap. Note when ordering a book from me?

Hi Christine.  I didn't find anything for me on your bookshelf, I'm a sci-fi/fantasy reader mainly.  But I did see your post and thought I could help you out.  2/1 deals or any other kind of deal are great for everyone.  Usually you can post here, like you did, and ask people to post a reply with what they want.  That way other people can see the freebie books are taken and won't try to order it.  What should happen is they request one through the system and them tell you about it and ask for the freebie here.  You accept the request and make sure to delete the freebie book from your bookshelf on your own, otherwise someone else could order it and you'll have a counfusing mess. 

It works great for you too.  If the books are thin enough you can wrap both in the two sheets of paper PBS prints out, or you can add a couple more sheets if they are thicker.  The point is to get them all in one package because media mail shipping prices go up very slowly.  Instead of $2.41 you will probably spend $2.82.  I've even had three thin books together for the 2.41.  I also sent a box of nine books a couple weeks ago for a little over $4, so doing these deals is a cheap way for you to get more requests. 

Good Luck.
