Utah...West Virgina, Minnesota, Illinois, Arkansas and Hawaii

Those are the last few states that I need to have completed my "shipped to" map!!!!  It sort of exciting to think about how our books travel all over...probably more places than most of us ever get to see.

So PBS members of those states...please take a look at my shelf and see if there is anything that interests you. Help me complete my map!!!wink

If anyone needs a book from Connecticut to help fill out there map, let me know and I will see what you have listed.

I've seen posts like this over in the Book Bazaar when people are trying to fill their maps... don't know if it works... maybe with a deal it would! :)

You have Illinois, lots of times. I think you mean Iowa :)

edited to add - you also have Arkansas, but not Nebraska, and Minnesota, but not North Dakota. I worked for Rand McNally for 8 years - you're killin' me.

You're correct Elizabeth.  Taking a look at the map I see that she needs....Utah, W. Virginia, Iowa, Kansas, N.Dakota, Hawaii and I don't see one for Rhode Island but it's such a cluster in that area I might just have missed it.

I'd help you Tammie, but I'm from Maine.

Tammie, what I did was go to the Members Directory & search out members from the last 3 states I needed to complete my map.  Picked some members at random & just hunted through their Wishlists 'til I found someone looking for the books that I had available to post.  Worked like a charm for the most part ('til North Dakota didn't respond & the offer rolled over to the next in line sad).  You might try that...

Leslie Q, that's how I got Puerto Rico filled on my map. All I have left is Delaware but I haven't had any success there with the WL search.

Also only need to receive from Puerto Rico and Wyoming.

Hmm.  I'm missing Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota, Delaware, Hawaii and Alaska.  That's more than I thought!
