I came across a member whose bookshelf contained books about the history mental institutions and psychiactric facilities in America.  I should have made that person a buddy so I could revisit the list, but I didn't.  If anyone comes across this member in your browsing, please pm me.   I would be so grateful.

Thanks,

Philly

I believe you can search for such books, request them, see who has them (via the "pm" button - just don't send the pm), and then canceling before the 1-hour buyer's remorse period is up - they won't even know about the request unless they happen to be looking at their shelf and notice the little grey (pending 1-hour) indicator.

I suspect that there aren't that many of that kind of book in the system, so you will probably hit the person within a few tries.
