Based on average cost of $4.50 a book, what you would have paid in a UBS. ($4.50 X 4 books = $18.00)

My amount hasn't gone up in a really long time, despite me sending out a bunch of books and even receiving some back.

Maybe it's stuck. :->

I just hit $666.   I quickly ordered another book, but didn't realize the number won't change until I receive another one.   I'm not superstitious or anything, but my boyfriend is and he keeps giving me that crossed fingers sign.  LOL

Mine is $4 away from hitting the $4,000 saved mark--not that I absolutely believe it or anything! LOL I kind of take those figures with a grain of salt. Now, if they were to deduct the costs of participating in PBS--the amount of postage spent, paper to print labels, ink for the printer, tape, gas spent going to the PO and the cost of purchased credits, then I might believe it. At any rate, the simple fact is that I would not have spent money, certainly not $4.50 per book, on all the books I've acquired here in the past almost 2 years--most certainly not $4,000 worth! I'd have been using the library lots and lots more than I do now. But I wouldn't be having nearly as much fun! :o)
