We remind our members that asking for Wish List books in the Discussion Forums is prohibited, as well as book-for-book swapping (unless the two members are both subscribed to Box-O-Books).

Barry,  I don' t have it but you would get more hits if your topic read:

Desperately ISO THE DARK TOWER by Stephen King on CD

If this is the Dark Tower on your Wish List you can't ask for it at all in the forums, it against the rules to try to jump the wish list lines.

If it is not wish listed, asking for someone to look at your shelf for a book-4-swap would be against site rules unless you both joined Box-o-Books. But you could (again, only if it is a book available in the system and NOT wish listed) post something like "looking for dark tower on CD in a deal, willing to give the same deal on my shelf". You cannot attempt to do creditless swaps outside of the Box-o-Books program, that could jeopardize both swappers accounts.

Anyone else just a tad bit curious why the OP won't send books to Ames, Iowa ? (see his sig line)

Rob, I am.  I have even gone so far as to ask him more than once.  He has yet to answer the question.

Seems to me like the OP falls into the "Drive-by" poster category. Never checking back or never really careing to respond.

Interesting question, especially in light of the fact that he seems pretty desperate to get a copy.
