Dear Librarian; PBS Market,

Dear Librarian-  Wow!  I am so psyched by the PBS Market.  Do you have any tips on how to find out quickly if any of the books on my Wish List are in the Market right now?  – Shopping in Cheyenne

Dear Shy,

Sure!  There are three really easy, quick ways to find out if any of your Wish List books are being offered in the Market:

  1. On the Browse page, under the “Welcome back!” message, is a link to “New Bargain Books” – if any of your Wish List books are in the Market, there will be a link in parentheses, next to the “New Bargain Books” link.   This will take you to a list of your Wish List books currently for sale in the market.
  2. On the Market page, if there are any of your WIsh List books currently available, a link will appear above the Search options to take you to the list of Wish List books that you can purchase from the Market.
  3. If you go to your Wish List and choose “Market books” from the dropdown menu next to ReSort, your Wish List will display any books in the Market at the top of the list.

We hope this helps you find your next great read!

Dear Librarian – The Market is great, and I do plan to get books there, but I hope PaperBackSwap will keep on SWAPPING.  Isn’t that the main point of the club? I love PaperBackSwap!  Are things going to change?  – Stalwart swapper in Springfield

Dear Springy,

Not at all!  PaperBackSwap is dedicated to bookswapping, and the Market is just a great way to get more wished-for books to our members, while supporting the club and keeping membership free.  Every purchase will help defray the cost of running the club, so we can all keep on swapping!

    I’m hoping that there will actually be art/craft books offered through the Market. Such books seldom get posted to swap, and I’ve got a pretty extensive list of ceramic books, also sf/fantasy/surreal art books I’d love to get. I’ve looked and you have virtually none of those types. Any chance of increaseing those? I’m not the only one who would bless you!

    Hi, How can I stop getting e-mails form the Market? It is very annoying to keep receiving notices for a book I want only to open the e-mail and find it is from Market and wants money plus credits. I keep getting them for the same book over and over. Please fix it so we can disable this feature if we wish to. Thanks. June

    Hi June,
    Sorry about that… it’s easy to change any and all email notifications coming from PBS. First, login and go to “My Account”. Then click on the “Settings” tab. Look for the “Email Preferences” Section… there is an “Email” link in the middle or just scroll down and it’s the 5th blue block down on the page. Check the bottom two notifications to NOT receive the PBS Market notifications labeled: 1.Wish List Item Added to PBS Market & 2.Item similar to Wish List Item Added to PBS Market.

    Hopefully, I’ve helped you but if that doesn’t work… you should contact PBS via feedback where someone can help you with your account directly.

  4. I’ve been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this web site. Reading this information So i am happy to convey that I have an incredibly good uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed. I most certainly will make certain to do not forget this website and give it a look regularly.
