Anybody familiar with Jack Chick knows exactly what I'm talking about. I'm looking to amass a collection of Jack Chick literature, and will trade books from my shelf for them.

They are quite small, so I would be wanting to trade a number of them per book, depending on the size of the book, etc. Contact me if interested.

Scott, I'm sorry but you are not allowed to "trade a book for a book" All trades must be done with credits.

Here is the FAQ:

Can we swap books for books directly with other members on this site?

Yes, but only if you both subscribe to Box-O-Books.

  • "Creditless" swaps are permitted ONLY between two Boxers.
  • Using the PBS site to conduct an under-the-table book-for-book swap without using credits would be in direct violation of PBS policy, and would put both members' PBS accounts in jeopardy.

Why is this?

  • We have worked very hard on this site, and it has cost us (and continues to cost us) a great deal of money. The Box-O-Books service is one of the few sources of income the site has generated to offset our financial losses, and we are still deeply in the red. Without some financial support we will not be able to continue the club. We are trying to keep the site free for our members, and Box-O-Books was one innovation intended to help us do so.
  • PBS relies greatly on the "honor" system among our members. We are pleased to say that the majority of PBSers are honest and above-board; if that were not so, the club could not continue.
  • We hope that the rule makes sense to you, and that you understand that we are not being unfair or greedy. It is simply that if enough members did this, we would have to close down the club.

And it would be a credit for credit trade, if the person offering the jack chick tract posted it on PBS, and I then requested it. The only catch is that I would ask for more than one of them , hence it would be the reverse of a "I'll give you three for one" deals.

Nope, I just wasn't overly specific in the post.
