Hi Heather,

Welcome to PBS!

Sometimes it takes time to get orderes, but the more you post in the forums, the more you get your shelf looked at.

At this time I'm only looking for books in my reminder list.

It took me a few months to really get active. The books go out in the order they were posted, so I think often times, it takes a while to move up the list. Once it starts happening, and you add books, it's great!

Hello and welcome to PBS.  I did look at your bookshelf but I did not see anything I would like to read.  But I will gift you three credits so you may order some books to read.  Adding more books to your shelf will also help you get requests.  I get books from friends, garage sales, library sales, thrift stores and anywhere else I can.  If you have a smart phone, there is an app called PBS wishing which is free and allows you to scan a book's ISBN to see if anyone is wishing for that book.  It is very helpful so you do not end up getting a bunch of books that no one wants.  Meanwhile, give it time and you will get some orders.

I just ordered a Sandra Brown book for you :) Also, if you have a chance, you should check out my shelf. I am always offering a 4 for 1 on paperbacks and a 3 for 1 on hardbacks :)
