I unfortunately have way to many unpostable books.  Unpostable* for a variety of reasons(water damage, stained, binding issues, etc). From a nonsmoking(no guarantee books don't smell of smoke), one cat home. They are divided by type-if you prefer paperbacks over hardcovers. I'd really like to get rid of as many as possible-just basically looking for credits to cover shipping costs.

*When I was making these lists some of the books appeared to be perfectly postable, but I figured they must be in the unpostables for a reason.

Please bump thread and send a pm of what you are interested in. Let's see if we can make a deal.

Thank you

>>>just basically looking for credits to cover shipping costs<<<<

Hope this helps in your goal.  You really can't cover shipping unless the books are very small if you are doing a 1 credit deal. I Guestimated this based on deals I send out:

USPS Media Mail rates*:

Up to 1 pound.......................................$2.41 (1 book or 2 small light books)

edit:  You can probably send out those little cozy or romance books  maybe 3-4 and still make it under $2.41.

More than 1 pound, less than 2 pounds....... 2.82 (1-3 books if they are paperback)
More than 2 pounds, less than 3 pounds..... 3.23 (about 4 books)
More than 3 pounds, less than 4 pounds..... 3.64  (about 5-7 paperback books if light)

More than 4 pounds, less than 5 pounds.....4.05 (about 5-7 books, may include a hardcover) (about 3 paperbacks and 2 hardbacks)
More than 5 pounds, less than 6 pounds.....4.46 (about 8-9 books, all paperbacks, or mix and match as required to meet your postage needs)

and so on...........
More than 6 pounds, less than 7 pounds.....4.87
More than 7 pounds, less than 8 pounds.....5.26
More than 8 pounds, less than 9 pounds..... 5.65
More than 9 pounds, less than 10 pounds....6.04

Thanks for your information, but this isn't the first deal I've ever done. I never said I was looking for the exact am't that each deal was going to cost to ship in credits-there would be no way to do that. I am looking to get rid of as many books as possible-in a manner that both sides find agreeable. If the am't of credits doesn't work for either side than there is no deal.
