But it's not on my booklist.  Is there a way to post it so that she is the one who can request it?  It is on the wishlist for other people, so I know if I put it directly on my shelf, it will get snatched up.

 If it is on her wish list you can post it directly to her.  Go to her wish list find the book and you should be able to post it.  If it is not on her wish list tell her to put it on

Make sure you are on her bookshelf when you post it.  If you go to the book detail page, then you are posting it FIFO rather than to her.  There will be a tiny line at the top confirming that you are posting directly to her.

Or you can use the Mail to a Friend feature, which is an option accessed from the book information page.  Input the ISBN, then under More Options, the bottom choice is Mail-To-A-Friend.

If the book is on your friends wishlist, that is probably the quickest and easiest.

Make sure your friend puts the book on auto-request.

Mail the book to her without putting it on your bookshelf and ask her to transfer a credit to you.
