I should join that site just so I can send you books! lol
You never know, i might have some you want.

I'll have to check my 'give away' box and compile a list in here.

I used to buy and sell books on half.com, and i remember it would take anywhere from 2 weeks to almost 6 weeks to receive books from people. When people bought mine, i would send them out the very next day no matter what.

Have you mentioned in the live chats about the delay in books? I bet some members in there can help explain why. I'm still debating on whether to join it or not. I might end up shipping out alot and not getting any back, and then i'll get disgruntled and go on a rampage. lol (just in time for halloween to turn into a werewolf)

Just curious..i signed up at the site, but i haven't listed any books yet. I just wanted to find out more about it, and you have to join before checking out the site further.
How long do we have to hang out at the site without posting any books before they kick us out? Or do they?
I started thinking that $3 a book to ship can add up fast...and all this time ive been buying paperbacks locally from 10cents to 50 cents apiece. So thats a big jump in price. Now i want to wait.
