Not sure if this is the type of answer you're looking for, but... I call it my library list, and it's the list of (now) 500+ books that at some point looked interesting enough I thought I might want to read it. I have always checked my library first to see if a free copy is available and then, if not, moved a book over to my PBS wish list where it is not free.

Right now of the approx 500+ library list books, over 200 of them are available to me via digital library downloads(FLP). And about another 200 are available via a paper copy at the library (I have a GREAT local library system). So, I don't really have a formal ebook for purchase wish list, per se. I did make one at B&N of the books that I have on my PBS wish list and I do check it periodically. Only once has a book gone below $5 for me to buy it in e-form. Most of them still hover in the 6-11 range, so I wait for a paper copy to trade here instead.

Any ideas on how to have a ebook WL that others can see?  At B&N only your B&N Nook library can be viewed by the public, correct?

With the NOOk No one can Buy eBooks for you ...Never figured out Why they wanted to make WL Public.  On Amazon People Can buy eBooks for you!!!

IMO I think having the B&N WL option to allow it to be public would allow folks to look at each other's WL and compare them to their B&N library.  Then a person can say "hey I have one you want on your WL", can I borrow <name a title> which I see you have in your library?

Wouldn't that be OK?

I guess but who would be Trolling WL to ask a person they wouldnt know IF they want to borrow an eBook.... kinda strange to me!  Where I have seen post like......  My friend purchased a eBook for me but I never got it......  With Answers You cant Buy an eBook for some one else!      Well B&N gets the Money you get ZERO!
