I've just received "Dream Mountain" from my mother, and she raved about it. Now I am trying to find the other two in the series:

A Dream Come True

and

Echoes From Heaven

We really, really would love to have these two books,

 

Thanks for looking at my post!

Can I offer/ask more than 1 credit for a book?

No.

  • A bound book "costs" 1 credit at PBS (no exceptions)

  • An audiobook "costs" 2 credits at PBS 

    • some "children's-length" audiocassette items cost 1 credit each

Offering to "pay" (or asking a requestor to "pay"--see below) more than "PBS price" for a book is not permitted. 

Why?

  • If the book is Wishlisted, offering more than the PBS "price" for the book may allow members to leapfrog over others in the Wish List for the book. This obviously is not fair.

  • Even if the book is not Wish Listed, a "free market" system could lead to "bidding" for a book, and auctions are NOT permitted on PBS.
  • One reason is that auctions are subject to state laws, and as PBS members belong to various states, this could be illegal.
  • The other reason is that we want all members to have a fair chance to get books on PBS.  Pitting those who have lots of credits to spare against those who don't have a lot of credits at the time goes against the very spirit of PBS--the fair sharing of books. Everybody equal.

Ooops, sorry bernie! You'd think after two years on here, I would have read that! I apologize.

No need to apologize. *smile* Just being a helper bee. I would hate to see someone get  into trouble over such a simple thing.
