Does the system automatically do  a  first up first choice on posted books that's wishlisted?  I have been looking around the site for a couple days  and have  several wishlisted books I plan on posting soon. 

How lenient are the rules with writing in the books?  I have a couple that have like initials in the front pages and one that has number like 620/40 wrote on the front page for example.  Other than that the books are very good condition. Is it allowed to be posted?  Or is it NO writing at all.

When posting Wish List books to your Bookshelf, they will be offered to the first member who placed that ISBN on their Wish List who has their account on Active status.

As for the writing in your books on the inside of the front cover, or on non-text pages, they should be fine to post here.

Here is the section of the Help Center Docs regarding that:

No writing or highlighting or underlining on text pages

  • a signature or note on the flyleaf or inside front or back cover is OKAY
  • an author's signature on the title page is OKAY
  • writing or highlighting or underlining on the text pages is NOT OKAY
