I went "pbs market shopping" for the first time this morning. Wow...my wallet and I were happily surprised. I ordered 9 books (see below) off my wishlist for a fraction of what one or two of them would have cost at B&N.....matter of fact....I bought only 2 books last week at B&N and it cost me almost $50.00!

Great, Tammy!

I have a paperback version of The Winter Rose and I think it must be like a gazillion pounds...so I'm not surprised is moving slowly on the WL!

I know...I have the Tea Rose in paperback and its HUGE!!  But I don't want to start it until I have both copies in hand...................I am picky like that if I am going to read books in a series.  Gotta have them all cause if its a good story I don't want to have to wait or run to the bookstore to get the next part!

I ordered two hardbacks off my wishlist, I was very pleased with the price and shipping. :) It was a little slow getting processed and left for the mail man. But I didn't mind.

You're lucky. All the books I want from the Market cost way too much. There were two I was going to order, but it was $20 for the two. I got them on Ebay for $10. So far I'm unimpressed by the prices in the Market. Maybe if I had a nice surplus of credits that I could use to lower the cost it wouldn't be so bad.
