I'm a teen who loves to read...but the problem is that I'm all out of credits. Summer and reading just go along so if you could help me and take a look at me book shelf, I have some great romantic novels, Great childrens books and some young adult books.

 Thank you guys so much!

I read non-stop when I was a teen---long, long ago.  I have given you a credit since I hate to see you unable to get anything to read. Under the circumstances I will offer you 2 for 1 on my list, at least for this gifted credit, anyway. (If you get any more credits I'll offer you 2 for one on my list for them, too.)  I have a bit >500 books on there, so you might take a lok at it.   I also have them for sale for $2.55 if you buy <10 of them and $2.45 if >10 of them.  

Happy reading!!

In case you don't know you can buy credits and if you really want to read and are out of cash go check books out of the library......also ...somewhere above in a red sticky there is a thread where you can get damaged books free I do not think credits are needed.....As you are a minor I am sure you have a parent who belongs to the club you can ask them to buddy you credits or buy you some..good luck

I am not sure I have anything you would like on my bookshelf cuz most of the teen books my daughter takes & keeps...LOL

But feel free to look at my shelf and if there is a book or two that you would like just PM me the title/s and your address and I will send it to you :)

Have a Good Summer & very glad you want to Read your way though :)

Take Care,

Mady,  I have some teen books you might be interested in, and I'm always willing to offer a deal. 
Details of my deal are here:  http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=206030
Most of the teen books are either on my bookshelf or in my signature line. 
My daughter is 14.  We have a lot of younger books she's outgrown, some R.L. Stine and similar books that she still enjoys, as well as big novels.  She'll read just about anything she can get her hands on, so we have a big variety.  I did check your wish list, but we didn't have those.  We recently bought a big stack at Big Lots for 50 cents each, so if you have that store check there!

That way I could give her a credit. I didn't know if I had it or not and I guess now that I know I don't I won't be able to get it since her acct is closed. Sorry Mady. Sandra  I offered her 5 for one credit on my paperbacks but she must have had the acct closed before she could order!
