I'm brand new to PBS and have posted TC 10 books, adding more.  I've already spent my 2 credits :)


Anyway - I have a fair number of books to post, and was curious how quickly true crime books move here.  Once posted, do yours "sell out" quickly?


Thanks, Juli

My books by Ann Rule seemed to go within a month or 6 weeks. None of them were wishlisted but they seem to be requested pretty promptly.

Hi Juli

My books move pretty fast.  Of course there are books that are very popular so there may be alot of members who also have it on their shelf, but most of my books, since I have joined have moved fast.

I read mostly just true crime and a lot of the books I post move fairly fast. I've also noticed that if I post thrillers/murders/mysteries (fiction) they seem to go fast. The newer the book the faster it flys out of here.

When I was reading and posting true crime books, it seems to me that the popularity is related to the age of the books. Newer books are more popular IMO.

I agree with everyone else..the new ones seem to go right away...but the older ones that I have ...hang here forever!!   My biggest problem is finding out what new books are out there and getting on the list for them.  I use my wishlist only or I re-order books I have already read :(
