There is a new option on PBS called Gold Key membership - which you pay for.  Check it out

I only mentioned that to mention this.

One of the options with the Gold Key is that when I post a book, I can see if it's on my friends wish list.  MY FRIENDS NO NOT have to be Gold Members for me to have that option.

That is all to say.  lol  If you aren't my friend, feel free to friend me.  You might get a book or two posted to you once I take my shelf off hold.  Just a heads up, that's all.

I always want to post to my friends but never know who might be wishing for my book.

I bought the gold membership as well, and I'm looking forward to posting WL books to my friends!

Another Gold Key member here!  I'm excited about several of the benefits, including the ease of posting WL books to friends.  yes

I am tempted to join but just don't have the money for it right now:) Maybe in the future. One thing I would love is having the bigger wish list option. That and this listing to your friends option would be the reasons I would join. Let me know how it works!

I always like to post to a friend if I can too, but usually don't know who has it on their WL.  I think I'll like this feature of the Gold Key and I've already filled up all my extra WL spots.  :)

There are some people on here that I always check their wish list first but sometimes it isn't on their list or it was a book they want but don't have room to put it on their list. That feature sounds really nice. You all will have to let me know if it works good. Another person said they couldn't find out how it worked.

Charity, the point I was trying to make is that even if you do NOT join, you will get the benefits if your friends join.  When I post a book, it searchs ALL my friends, including you, not just my Gold Key friends.  That's great I think.

I am not signing up as a gold key member yet but probably will in the near future. I have taken advantage of your posts, however, and added everyone to my friend list. Thanks and feel free to add me so we will be friends when I do sign up.

I have a lot of friends since I have my acceptance to auto.  I don't really mind if I know them or not.  When I post a book I'll look at friends and if I really know someone, then that's who I'll send it to.  If it's a friend I don't reconize then I'll make the decision to post to them or simply to FIFO.

One can never have had too many friends.

I ordered a book yesterday afternoon Amanda and it came up with your name to order from. 

I haven't posted any WL books yet so not sure how that works.  Has anybody else?

Cynthia, you just "post" the WL book like normal and then on the screen where it asks you to be sure the title, author, ISBN and format match, if any of your friends have it on their WL, you will get a dropdown box that lists them all and an option for FIFO.  So you can choose one of those friends, or select FIFO.  When I get multiple people in that box, I write down the names then back out of that page so that the posting is not complete.  Then I check the WL of those friends to see if I have multiples for any of them.  Hope that makes sense!
