Has this option disappeared?  I thought when we clicked on a book on our bookshelf, that option was available.  I don't see that button, not even under "more options."

Sounds like  a glitch, the option is still available under my listings.

I'll try again.  Thanks, Teresa.

ETA:  I think I've got it.  I was trying to send a book that is on my shelf, but not available for trading.  The option is not there for those I checked.  But it is there for books on my shelf that are available to trade.  Since this is a WL'd book, I don't want to enter it as it will then go to someone.  I want to mail it to a friend with a printed label. 

I'll try posting something else and choosing her so I can get a label.

When I'm mailing a WL book for a swap, which requires DC, I post a dummy book and use the mail to a friend option.  Post a Grisham or a Nora Roberts that's readily available in PBS.
