Is there a way to tell if a WL book was posted to you from a friend?  Or is it that you just know that you are friends with that person and assume they chose to send it to you?

I know it shows up in my outgoing orders. But I don't think it shows up on the incoming.

If they used the "Mail To A Friend" option, then it does not show up at all. It is only on their My Account page.

I know I've seen a note that something akin to "you're receiving this book because a friend has posted it to your WL" on the Accept Offer page. I don't remember the title, but just flipping back through a few random in-coming transactions from this year (it would have been in the last year) I don't see any notation, so it may just be on the accept page.

Yes, it shows up on the Accept Offer page, and I think it continues to show until you mark the book received.

I have one from a friend in transit to me now, and on my account page, it states:
