Hey everyone. I am looking for this book to own as I only have a library copy right now. I am using it for school papers and such and research. Anyways, I am willing to give someone 5 credits for the book if they have it. I know it's not a ton, but I would love help on this. I appreciate your time and look forward to those who can help. Here is the link direct to it.   http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780786420360-Encyclopedia+of+Cryptozoology+A+Global+Guide+to+Hidden+Animals+and+Their+Pursuers

 

Thanks a bunch.

-Tim

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

Ah, sorry about that, didn't read that as you can tell. Can a mod remove this post?
