I'm sorta new to PBS, but it seems that my requests for the Philippa Gregory books are very long and sometimes get deleted.  Is there a faster way to get them off someone's bookshelf.  I've scoured the website, and still dont quite understand it.  Please help if ya can.!  Just antsy.

Shannon if you are willing to accept a copy that is outside the posting guidelines of PBS you can post in the book bazaar that you are looking for the Boleyn Inheritance in any condition and see if someone has an unpostable copy.  Most people will offer to send you an unpostable free with any order from their shelf.

I think you'll find that even though the WL on some of these books are long the lines tend to move pretty quickly on some of them and since that is one of her newer releases its not going to take forever to get to you. 

Do you like any other Historical Fiction?

Shoot. I had one earlier this summer, but have already swapped it out.

I had one, but already swapped it out. Make sure that you WL all the different editions as some swap faster than others.  I'm waiting for the Constant Princess right now and there is at least 6 different editions on my WL. I've been a member here for a little over a month and have noticed that some lists move quickly, some not so much.  Just make sure and tag them all.  A month ago I was #78 on the new Dean Koontz book and just got notified my copy has been mailed.

If you have to have it sooner you could try half.com or Amazon used books.  You could probably get it for about $7 including shipping.

While you wait for a copy through PBS, you might want to check with your local library. It probably has all the Gregory books.
