Jackie, unfortunately you cannot do this on PBS.  Books here cost a point apiece.  You can ask any value for your books up to a maximum of a credit per book.  You cannot ask for more than one credit per book.  Bidding/auctions are not allowed.  Asking for more than a point per book is not allowed.  (You can state that you want to send them out as a set, and offer them to the first person who will give you 2 credits and you can make that a condition of you sending them, but against the club rules to ask for more than that for two books.)

From the Help Center:

Can I offer/ask more credits (more than PBS 'price') for a book?

 

No.

·         A bound book "costs" 1 at PBS (no exceptions) credit
·         An audiobook "costs" 2 credits at PBS (note: some "children's length" audiocassette items cost 1 credit each

  

 

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.


Asking for more than "PBS price" for a book is considered bookselling

  • Bookselling is not permitted at PBS
  • If you feel that your book is too valuable (or too costly to ship) to be swapped for "PBS price", you should not Post it here.
  • If this is a matter of postage cost (your book is heavy), remember that you can also request a "heavy" book with the credit you get for sending yours--so it all evens out.
