I think I will start doing that, as well. I had absolutely no idea my books would go so fast -- 22 of 25 books gone in a week! So now I have all these points that I think it will take me a long time to use -- nothing on my wish lists seems to be available at either PBS or BookMooch. :( I have a couple more books I could swap out, but I can see they are on 20+ wish lists, so I think I'll just wait until I need the points. I'm learning.... :)

I just save what I've not listed and take to the UBS for purchase credits.

Boy, had to share this. Book was requested and mailed in early October (10/4 postmark). PBS had given it up for a loss and gave the point back. It just landed this week, two months later. No clue as to where it has been in the meantime.

Trading book swap credits

Postby Michy » Mon January 3rd, 2011, 6:19 am

I am a member of two book swap sites, BookMooch and Paper Back Swap, and I would like to get rid of some of my BM credits in exchange for some PBS credits. If anyone else here is a member of both sites and is interested in doing a trade, let me know.

I think this is probably limited to U.S. residents, since I don't think Paper Back Swap is available outside of the U.S. :(
