I have six books en route and two more to be mailed.  Good grief!  I'm thrilled to be getting "new" books and I'm glad that I have the credits to cover them but things are going to have to slow down!

Is anyone else having a run on  their WL?

I had a run on my WL over last weekend and the early part of the week, too--I got two WL books in the mail yesterday, have four on the way to me and another waiting to be mailed out. But that's kind of a normal thing for me--things will go in streaks. I rarely go a week without at least a couple of WL books coming up, but it seems like when it rains, it pours, and sometimes half a dozen will come up all within a day or two.

BTW, I think I have a book headed your way, LeeAnne, I just mailed it this morning. It wasn't a WL book though I don't think, 'cause it was on my shelf. (It's the PD James book...cripes, I can't recall which one now. LOL)

Yeah, it's the second Dalgliesh book.  I went snooping on your shelf and found it. :)  I've read most of the PD James stand alones and many of the Dalgliesh books but not the early ones.  James is getting on in years (nearly 90) and she won't be writing forever so...I'm reading PD James!

A bit.  Slow but steady, except for the series of 6 books that were all posted at once.  That was a nice wave.   Quietted down now again, though.

I have had 3 offered to me in 3 days. They are all on the way to me. Quick mailers and WL posters are the best!

I actually have only had one come up..but I'm new and that's a good thing.  Because I have not enough credits yet to cover my entire wish list!  LOL...Four books in the mail to someone...and then I can go shopping!!!

Oh yeah.  I've received 5-6 WL books in the past few weeks.   And I kind of wish it would slow down, because I can't keep up!

I'm sure it has a lot to do with all of the new members.

I've gotten quite a few recently.  I go in streaks, too. I can get some really dry spells, though. And then I want to go order stuff not on my WL just so I have something coming.  Very bad habit!
