I intend on purchasing a Wish List item for the person directly below this post, if he/she agrees to do the same for the member below their post by acknowledging the following few guidelines (click and paste this blue paragraph within your post):

1)      Wish List titles must have been posted PRIOR to the date of this Opening Post

2)      Purchase must meet/exceed PBS standards, thus maintaining the Reciprocal Rule (paraphrasing the Golden Rule):   Purchase in the condition you would want to receive (http://www.paperbackswap.com/help/search.php?terms=good+condition)

3)      Communication between the Giver and Wisher is highly encouraged to avoid any misunderstandings

4)      Do not hesitate to contact NCBEARS via PM concerning the actual thread

5)      Bumps do not count as entries

6)      Limit One pay it forward per member per calendar month

 

Stepping Stones

1)      Review member’s Wish List

2)      Select title(s)

3)      Purchase the book(s) via wished ISBN from local/online vendor, including the PBS Market or Amazon links listed with each book

4)      Upon arrival (or purchase online), post the book(s) via the member’s Wish List (click link for instructions: Can I post a book directly to someone's Wish List?)

5)      Upon acceptance by Wisher, package and mail Wish List book(s)

6)      Elect to keep or return the credit(s) once the Wisher has marked the book Received

Step #5 (package/mail) may be skipped if purchase was mailed via online vendor (and sent directly to the Wishing Member to avoid paying postage TWICE), but ensure the book is marked “mailed” in the PBS order

BUMP: while this does not count as an official entry (similiar posts should follow this form), just a reminder: let's not forget to thank our Givers in the thread once we receive our Wish List item(s). Thanks, in advance, for participating!

LOL. Sounds sweet, but ...

Why not just look at your own wishlist and give yourself a ROAK?

Not joining yet but just might. Sounds like fun:)

TomeTrader said, Why not just look at your own wishlist and give yourself a ROAK?

That is the funny thing with me. I always go out of my way to buy someone else something nice, like in the buddy swaps, etc. But I wouldn't spend that much on me. I guess that is the nice thing. When someone else is in charge of buying for you, you don't have to feel guilty.

I love the "Pay it Forward" idea. Plus, it's more fun to buy for someone else and receiving a book will still feel like a gift! :)   -Kathryn
