I think it is against PBS rules to ask for wishlist books like this.  Get in line with the rest of us!

I don't think it is against PBS rules as there is a completely separate thread on this very subject.  Don't know if the link below will work, but if you search for it, it's there. 

Pat:  You might want to search out that thread and move your post there to receive a bit more notice on the books you're #1 in line for. 

Book Bazaar - I'm # 1 on the Wish list for these books******

As others have pointed out what you are doing it isn't exactly against the rules but how you did it got people a little peeved.  As pointed out by Karen, you need to ask in the correct place.   Pointing us to your wishlist doesn't let us know what place you are in line.  That information is only visible to you.  So you need to create a list of books you ARE the first wisher and point that out in the proper Book Bazaar thread.

Thanks, Karen and Alicia, for clarifying that point. I had forgotten about that particular thread.

I will clarify :) Asking people to go to your Wish List to post books is NOT ok. That is asking to jump the wish list lines. Saying I am #1 for book XXXX and asking someone to post book XXXX into the system is OK because if you are actually #1 in line you should get the book when they post it properly. We (the BBZs) would prefer that you keep the "I am #1" post in the one thread that exists already instead of starting individual ones.

Yes, there is another thread specifically for this type of thread.  That other thread that Karen linked to has been in place since mid-2012.

Edited...because Melanie and I were posting at the same time!  cheeky
