PBS is really slow right now. No books going out, is anyone else experiencing this?  I'm down to 0 credits and still have some True Crime novels on my bookshelf, take a look, you might find something you like.

Subject: I am slow also :(

For me, it's because the books I want....no one has.  I have gotten a few requests for some books but not as much as I've had in the past.

Well hopefully it will pick up for all of us. Every time I see someone requesting a book from me it makes my day.   :)

I mailed out 9 books yesterday. When it rains it pours. Last weekend was the first garage sales of the year and I was able to find 4 books that were wish listed books.  Lucky!

I have 6 books out in the mail right now.  I went for more than a month without getting a request.  Postage is too expensive but it is cheaper than a new book.  I remember the days when I kept stamps and put a few on a book and walked it to the postal box.

It's been deader than a door nail for me! And what's worse is none of my wish list books seem to get listed! I have to believe it's more people reading on Kindles. Dixie

TC is such a special niche  and I think everyone buys one if they see it I do as far as a perback TC. Unless I buy from the book store which is too expensive Dillions A grocery chain is the only place I buy from .Did anyone else have there Wal mart not have TC in there book section I never find any there anymore>

check my shelf once in a while, sometimes I will post a true crime but they don't come very often, depends on the author

 

I'd rather read a  good suspense/thriller/mystery

I have some on my shelf as soon as I post a new one it goes out so they are older cases.
