They have "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" books shown as lendable at the bottom of the screen. From what I understand, they were at first, but now they're not lendable. Anybody know if their copies still are?

Confusing.

They are not lendable at B&N......

ETA: Of the books they show at the bottom, B&N only shows the Suzanne Collins books as lendable...

I just joined & listed a whole page of books. I didn't see anything about getting 2 free credits? Do you have to buy something first?

I listed mine, but all I'm seeing as available are the freebie classics we all got back in the summer. Someone wants my freebies, I'll trade for free. I may go de-list on this thing. The whole buy a credit deal just really reeks of someone else making money off the kindness of my LendMe books.

Heres my list!!  http://ebookfling.com/mybooks.html 

It's disappointing that this is the default address for everyone's list.  I tried putting in my user name instead of "mybooks.html" but that didn't work either.

It would be great if we had a specific URL that goes directly to our booklist then I'd put it in my siggy!

That's probably it. Thanks Barbara! smiley What I don't understand is that they let me list a few of the books I bought, but another site says these same books can't be traded? That's disappointing since all I have otherwise are the free books everyone else seems to have.

The books I bought are:

  • Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning
  • Angel by James Patterson
  • Full Circle by Cate Tiernan &
  • Ten Days In a Mad-House - Under Cover by Nellie Bly ( I see I can loan this one)

I purchsed 8 Amazon eBooks & could only add 3 to Fling LOL  I really wish they had default address for each person too!  Kinda of a bummer.   1 eBook I got free a few weeks ago Amazon now has for $8.99!!!

Some of the books that Amazon says are lendable Ebookfling wouldn't let me enter. It's also got a glitch where if you set your preferenes to "Kindle" it reverts back tl "All".

I've got 13 books listed now, and can't get back in. It won't accept my email address and my password. I've sent in two requests to have my password reset, but haven't gotten anything in email yet.

I'm not having much luck with it so far.

Ed. Apparently it's now saying my email address isn't registered at all. I guess I'll have to start all over again.

Cindy check your Junk email....   As long as it had not started I got email updates.  Then as soon as they opened ALL emails from them went into my Junk ....  Go Figure!     Your eMail addy IS your member ID!

I don't have a place for junk email. Everything comes through with no filters.

Your eMail addy IS your member ID!

According to the site, my email addy is not registered. So I can't get in and they can't send me a password because my email addy is not on file.

Somehow, everything I did the other day seems to have been completely lost. Waiting on an email from them, but no response yet.

I think I would just open an another account then.   How do you keep spam/junk out of your email??  I get swamped!!

Tried, but then it says my email addy is already on file so I can't open another account. So I'll just have to wait until I hear back from them. At least the Feedback option was working.

I get all kinds of junk all day, but not a ton. I just try to be careful about who I sign up at. You can't stop the stuff that just goes to every email addy open, so I don't worry too much about that.

Seriously, do enough people buy Viagra and Fake Rolex watches online to make it worth the work? Lol. Those are two things I'd want to go to professionals for!

You don't want to do that, unless it's a web site you signed up for in the first place.

All unsubscribing to spam does is prove 1) that their spam got to you and 2) you read it enough to find their 'unsubscribe' link and 3) you have a live email addy they can sell.

They'll just keep sending you stuff and sell your email addy to other people if you do that.

Well, Friday afternoon and no response from Ebookfling on my problem since Tuesday. I see a few others are complaining about being locked out, but the site lists the problem as 'solved' by saying that they can send for a new password. Which those members say they've done, but no password in email yet for them, either. It's only a handful on the forum so far, so I don't know how many are affected.

I've sent in another feedback note. Hopefully some response soon.

wish someone would list something other than the free classics from last summer's B&N special. Everybody can go get a copy of Vanity Fair and Dracula any day of the week without spending for it.
