I got a book recently that had insurance on it. I thought that was kind of strange. Does anyone buy insurance for the books they send out?

No, because it's completely cost-ineffective for the purposes of trading on PBS. Purchasing PBS-DC (+/- postage) makes more sense for making sure you get your credit (more quickly).

I've never used insurance for books.

No. Or DC either any more.

No, never have. I have received books people sent priority mail and via UPS, both of which were very expensive and totally unnecessary, but haven't had a signature required package or one with insurance yet. LOL
