    OK, Im guessing a mod may think anything to do with trades should go in the sales forum.....but I cant help thinking that many people who look at the Book & Literature AVF section, don't look at the sales forums.

    I have tried to sell a couple of books in the sales AVF section and its been useless...DVDs, CD, Electrical items and vouchers sell well !

    So, is there a possibility of starting a swap thread? This would be like book swap (no sales allowed).........

    What do people think?

    It would most definitely have to be done in the Sales forum - swap is just another word for Trade and Trade threads spring up all the time.

    I have no qualms about Trade/Swap threads being created as normal and a single thread here to track throse threads so they dont get lost as such.

    To elaborate:

    Book Swap Thread

    Theydon Bois Said:

    I have a swap thread here [Link to Sales Thread], swapping My collection of David Gemmell Books for a potted plant, as I need the shelf space for the hardbacks the Grey Trilogy.

    Inked Said:

    I have a swap thread here swapping my 1st edition print run of Walking Dead for yesterdays Evening Standard.

    Etc....
