I have the entire set of Sookie Stackhouse books that I wanted to post, but was wondering if there was a way to post them as a set?  Some are paperbacks and some aren't.  Is there a way to do this?

You would have to offer them through the book bazaar or in the relevant genre forum (mystery?). These are probably all wish listed, so someone may tell you that you can't post them in the bazaar, but this is one of the areas where the site owners have given some leeway in the past. As long as your goal is to save money by sending all the books to one requestor and you're not asking for more than one credit per book, it's not really an unreasonable thing to do.

The way to do it is to list the titles and ISBNs that you have and then ask whoever wants them to add the ISBNs to her wish list and PM you. You then use the instructions in the Help Center to post the books directly to that member's wish list. Make sure you see the message that says "you are posting this book for x" on the post books page. Neither of you can have your accounts on hold. Make sure to go back and delete your post once the books are taken.

I would offer them in the Is This On Your WL threads in the Love/romance board (lots of Sookie fans there), the Mystery/thriller board and the Paranormal board.  You may not find someone to take them all but you can probably find a couple of people to take more than 1 to save you postage.

Thanks, I will list them in a bit.  I looked in the help center but did not see directions on how to post to a specific person's wish list. Any suggestions where to look?

If you post them in the WL thread in Paranormal they'll get snapped right up!
