I took a look Kristy but unfortunately I don't have anything. Hope someone does.

Kristy, clicking on your link takes me to my own wishlist.

I checked your WL Kristy; I didn't have any either.

Just so no one else sees this post before it is taken down and thinks they should do the same thing, asking for Wish Listed books is NOT allowed in the forums. You can read the rules for posting in the Book Bazaar in the red sticky at the top of the forum

http://www.paperbackswap.com/How-Use-Forum-Please-Read/topic/39715/

 

General Rules in the Book Bazaar:


 

(6) No trying to jump the Wish List "line" by offering or asking for postable Wish Listed books.  Postable Wish Listed books should be posted and swapped "officially".  This of course does not apply to posts advertising an alternate ISBN  (or non-ISBN version) of a Wish Listed title; it is fine to advertise that you have those posted to your account Bookshelf.

Jane - that question was covered deeply a couple weeks ago in another thread. The WL Multiples thread is the exception to Rule #6, since it is dealing with saving money. That thread makes the swapping of books cost effective. Either way, these books are going into the system rather than being donated to a Goodwill or being sold elsewhere.

I didn't mean for my post to be negative and I apologize if it came across that way.

Basically what I was asking was why is Kristy's request different than the "wishlist multiple" post?. She is trying to save people money also.

Even if she is #1 for those books, it's still considered jumping the WL lines or finding a way to beat the system. Wording is important in my opinion since we have a thread "I'm #1 on the WL" which is acceptable. It's different because those people have the books & are OFFERING them.

I have moved my request to the "I am #1 for this wish list" post

 

thank you
