I have seen other members having a link to their RL on their posts, asking for deals etc.

How do you do this?

They don't actually have a link to their RL, they've tagged all the books in their RL with a specific tag, and then linked to that page of tags.

Ahhhh! I just clicked on one and I see you are right!

Ok so now how do I do that?

I know how to do tags but how do I link it to my posts? Sorry, I am a baby at this.

Wendy, your link goes to "My Tags RLB" and the list is empty (at this time).

When you go to the link you have to remove the part that says mbr only and then copy/past the link. I learned that in a swap recently where we traded books from our TBR piles and had to have some tagged and linked.

THis should work: http://www.paperbackswap.com/tags/index.php?=1&type_id=1&tag_id=230590

 

OK you realize you are not likely to get a deal offer on WL books right? I didn't look at the whole list but it looked like most of them are not available on PBS. If someone has them they are not likely to offer 3 for 1 on postable WL books.   Although you might get lucky and someone may have more than 1 and post them to you to save postage-if they are also on your WL.
