occasionally I post a book to my shelf and the book has no other ones in the system and nobody is wishing for it. so mine becomes the only one in the system. I wonder when that happens frequently somebody requests the book within a few minutes of my posting it. Is this related to the reminder list in some way? It seems like people are waiting for a book but not wishing for it but they know when it appears. I guess this could be a random chance but it has happened to me several times. Are people getting some sort of notice when a book appears?
Also some of us have signed up for Daily Digest emails. Each morning there's an email with a link to my daily digest showing all the books in my preferred genres which were listed in the past day.
Like all the above responses, I think it's well....actually all the above!
I have a Wish List at 500 books, I also have a Reminders List of over 7,000 titles that I would like to have and that there are no current copies of.
Monday I got a notice (email) from PBS that a book similar to one on my Wish List had just been posted and that if I was interested in it I should i.e. 'take a look' - I did (look) and I did (order it). It was the same book (PB) on my WL but under a different ISBN - that was a good day!
When I ordered that book I went to the members Bookshelf and found another book that was on my Wish List but under a different ISBN as well - double luck!
When I first joined up with PBS I used to browse the previous days, as well as the current days postings - a lot of the time I was too late to order a particular title as it had already been taken by another member, so I would just add it to my ever growing Reminders List. Sometimes I was lucky and the books (s) just posted was still available. I no longer view or keep track of books just posted as I've got plenty to watch for on my Reminders List. I've ordered over 6,000 books and have become a little more selective on the titles I'm looking for.
Keep Posting Charles! We all appreciate getting the books we are looking for.
