I just went out to run some errands. When I got home I found that a book that I mailed last week had been marked received, one of my wishes had been granted (I've already accepted!) and someone else requested a book from my bookshelf (probably came up FIFO). How stinkin' cool is that? I love this place! :)

Hat trick!  Kind of makes your day, doesn't it?

Me too! I was upstairs cleaning in the library (taking books from the floor and putting them on the shelves!) and when I came down I found that my tabs on My Account were active all the way across -- never had that happen before!

Books to Mail (3)  Books I've requested (1)  En Route to me (2)  Books I've Mailed (4)  Wish List Holds (2)

It's a full house! This place rocks.   (oh, and while cleaning, I found about 30 more books to add to my bookshelf!)

I had 5 WL book offers last week.  I actually put my account on hold because I need to catch up on reading the WL books.

Today I went into a second row of tabs.  I've never seen that either.

I had a good day today. Someone posted several books in a series. I think I now have the ones between the two I had coming, so I can read them. :)

I love to check and see that people find things on my bookshelf. My hubby is happy when I get a book I want. It is one less he has to track down for me. I love this place because it allows me to get books I just can't find in other places so easily. Keep on reading!

I get WL offers often enough to be very happy.  Some books, the WLs on them are so long, I don't hope to ever get them, but I'm thrilled with it overall.  I've gotten a lot of great books that way.  I just joined PBS last summer, and I already had a significant list of HTF books that I carried with me whenever I was out shopping for used books.  Most of them I simply couldn't find, some weren't even available at ebay & Amazon, or if they were, the prices were ridiculous.  I've been fortunate enough to get a lot of those through PBS, which is the best testimonial I have to offer.  It's been great for me.
