In the Bazaar, there's a thread "I'm # 1 on the Wish List For..... "       My question is: how is that legal? Isn't this  asking for WL books out of FIFO?  Is there a loophole that makes this okay, because I know I'm #1 for a lot of books and if it is I'll be right there with my hand out.

If you're # 1 you're not jumping the wishlist line. You're just letting people know that this is a wished for book.  The may read the post and think, oh, I have that book. I'll go ahead and post it.

Okay, I can see that. It's just when I saw "Wish Granted" I made an assumption about how the book was posted.  Sorry.  Guess I'll compile my list!  Terry

Also if you list a bunch you are #1 for and someone has more than 1-it might encourage them to read and post them to you to save on postage.
