That is too bad! A lot of people say that RWAP books seem to run in clumps. You get a long string of good books, then if you get a RWAP, seems like you get a clump of those all at once.

Since they are Wish List, though ... you could offer them in the Book Bazaar for a credit ... there may be people willing to take them damaged to avoid the wait.

Sara has a point... someone may still take them for a credit.  But that is too bad you had to deal with books in that condition!

Bummer!  Sorry for your bad luck.  I just had my first RWAP in 3 years a few weeks ago.  It's never a fun experience sad

At least when you mark them RWAP, you're placed back at the top of the WL for them.  Let's hope 3 is not a charm in this case.
