I just joined a few days ago and have already sent out 7 books! Thank you!

I have a collection of Erotic Romance that I was thinking of putting up on Ebay. However, it might be less hassle to just trade them here. Most are Ellora's Cave, Trade Sized, and Hardbacks. Just about all are wishlisted. My question is, is it against the rules to ask for more than one credit per book? If not, where might I post the titles to see if anyone is interested in them?

Thank you for your help!

Per the site rules, you can only ask for 1 credit per book, unless it is an audiobook, which are worth 2 credits.

Yeah, unfortunately you can't ask for more than one credit.  However, you said most of the books are wishlisted.  If this is the case, once you post the books into the system, the first person on the wishlist gets an email stating that the book is available or, if their wishlist is on autorequest, the book will be automatically requested from you.  If you have books that are wishlisted, but under different ISBNs, you can try advertising this in the book bazaar.  There is a thread there for this purpose that you can add your books to.  Good question.  Welcome to PBS!

Jessica, if you want to see if your books are wishlisted, you can either (1) add them to your To Be Read pile (you can post them to your bookshelf from there once you make a decision about it) or (2) just look up the ISBN in the search. Under the description and book information, there will be a line that states how many people are wishing for that book.

If you choose (1) above, there will be a red W that indicates that the book is wishlisted, and if there is a green Wa, that means that the first person in line has the book on autorequest.

Hope this helps!

Not to take business away from PBS.  But those books can go for quite a bit on Ebay.  You might want to check that out first.  I have the new Harry Potter on audio CD that I might list on ebay instead of here.  That thing was expensive and sending it out for $4.50 in credits just doesn't seem worth it to me.
