I am new here and haven't learned how to navigate around yet.  But, are there ever very many Francine Rivers books posted?

Welcome, Evq! Her books get posted but most of her books are wishlisted so if you want any specific titles, I would suggest putting them on your wishlist so they will eventually come to you. Some of her books only have a couple of people waiting for them and others have 40 or more.

btw i noticed that you have some of her older books on your wishlist. She had put a notice on her website that the really older ones are NOT Christian fiction but are mainstream romances that she used to write that had sex scenes in them. just wanted to make sure you knew about those

I would suggest wishlisting them too!  I think one time I got lucky, and one I wanted was posted.  Either that, or I put it on my wishlist and it was posted really quick.  I can't remember.  Wishlist them!

I wishlisted the Francine Rivers books I wanted and it didn't take very long for me to get them either - I got Redeeming Love, And The Shofar Blew and A Scarlet Thread all from the WL, I was very pleased.   Oh and a friend of mine had my MIL for her secret sister at church and she WL the Mark of the Lion series and gave them to my MIL (so I didn't WL those, I'm just going to borrow them from my MIL).  So they all come up and pretty quick, but they go so quickly that you have to have them on WL.  Hope that helps!

I just wishlisted a bunch a few days ago, and had some posted for me already.

Actually, just FYI....apparently her older books have been pulled from the shelves per her (Rivers) request.  After she became a Christian, she didn't want her previous writings to be available to anyone, so technically speaking of you get a copy of one of her OLD Harlequin books, consumers have been asked NOT to pass them on but to destroy them.  At least this is how it was explained to me.  :)
