Subject: Extra copies?

I know that the system will not allow me to post two of the same book to my shelf.  However, a friend of mine has given me a whole box of books to post. (Despite my glowing recommendation she says she's just not techo-minded...)

Ok so I have two titles for which I have two copies.  They are not WL books...and it would appear that there are lots of copies in the system.

Any suggestions on what I should do?  Should I just cut my losses and donate the extras?

You can try offering it in the book bazaar free with another order from your shelf or hang on to the extra copy in the chance that the other one will get requested. Might be a long wait on a less popular title with a lot of copies in the system, though.

All depends on how long you mind holding onto it for, I guess

I experienced this myself. I keep a stack of duplicates by my computer tower and repost the ones I send out.

Thanks for your comments.  Right now I just have the two and they are both mass market paperbacks..so it's not like they take up a lot of room.  I'll just wait and see what happens.
