I wonder how does your book get picked? if there are 50 books listed do they go in order it was posted or random? do tags pn your books really work? what other ways can i get my bookshelf noticed? thank you for your patience if these turn up to be stupid questions.

Yes books go in FIFO order (thats first in first out) so if you posted a book today and there were thirty others before it it would become thirty one. What that means is if someone searches for that book title and they order from a search your book would be last to get ordered. BUT if I look at your shelf and click order this book I will be ordering the book from you.

To get your shelf noticed post in the forums, I promise we only bite a little bit most of the time. Also make a post in the book bazaar forum. You don't nessasarily have to post a deal but that will get you some orders quickly.

No question is a stupid question when you're learning!  We have all been there :)  Welcome to PBS!

Another way to get more books off your shelf is to do a little research. When a member orders a book from you have a peek at their wishlist. If you have any of them you can suggest it be added to the order through PM. If you don't want to do this, you can also just send a PM to any ordering members suggesting that they take a look at your shelf before you complete the transaction.
