I think it would be neat if we could have a Search option just for our Buddy List's Lists. For example, I'm looking for a certain book and would always like to order from a Buddy first but it's a pain to go through all their Bookshelves. And when I have a WL book it would be nice to have an easy way to see if it's on one of our Buddys WL first. Anyone agree? Or is there a way?

I don't know if there's a way, but I agree it would be great!

The only way seems to be to check their shelves and WL before hand.  I have people I post with regulary on the message boards. I've buddied a few because they have books on their WL that I have.  Usually I go through FIFO. But a couple of them have posted directly to my WL and I want to return the favor sometime.  Also after having WL and book requests time out it's nice to post it directly to someone you know will accept the book or the request.
