Hi all.  Just recently joined as I'm off work for next 60 days due to having chemo and radiation concurrently.  I can't stand being without several books and have exhausted my local libraries, used book store and even Barnes & Noble!

I just packaged up my first two books to mail (damn sticky packing tape!).  I've spent several hours perusing this site and have a Reminder List..I thought I was making a Wish List.

How do I transfer the books on Reminder list to Wish List?  I've been reading the FAQ's and learning my way around but didn't see mention of this.

Looking foward to an enjoyable relationship with all of you and this site.

Thanks,

Kelli, Horseheads, NY

From your reminders list, just click on the book title to bring up its description page, then click the "wish" tab on the right. You can then go back to your reminder list and delete the ones you've moved.

Welcome to the site! :)

Welcome to PBS Kelli!  From your Reminder List, there should be a button on the right side of each book listing marked "Wish" press that button(under the Buy From Amazon button)  to add the book to your main Wishlist.  Then on the left side, check the box for each book you wish to remove from your reminder list and click 'delete' button at the top of your page. 

Another method that works from either WL or RL, is to hover cursor over the book pic until the little window opens.  It will contain a button to add the book to your WL or RL (whichever you aren't currently in).

Only 1 of 23 books have "wish" marked, none of the others have it appear anyplace I can see.  Does that mean I have to buy them outright?

Kelli, if I'm understanding you correctly...the books that don't have a 'wish' button available, should have an 'Order This Book' option.  These books are available in the PBS system, and by using the "Order This Book" button you will be placing a FIFO order with another PBS member to send their book to you in exchange for one of your PBS credits. 

If the book is not available FIFO, the "Order This Book" button is replaced with "Order From Amazon" and the 'wish' option appears below Amazon.  Does this make sense?

If they don't have "WL" by them, it means that someone at the site has the book, and it's ready to be ordered. Those can stay on your Reminder list until you feel like ordering them.

If you need them, you can go to the Kiosk and buy credits from PBS, or check out the Book Bazaar and buy credits from other members. (Usually a lot cheaper than the site sells them at.)

The Bazaar is also good for getting more than one book for your credit. Some people post some really nice deals there.

Got it and thanks for all help everyone.  Good thing I have nothing to do today as I've spent over 4 hours on this site! LOL.
