I am wondering I looked up Plum Lucky by Janet Evanovich, says there is none listed but 3 not listed....

Is there a way to contact someone to get one listed????   I would really like to read this book it is the only one out of her whole Stephanie Plum Series that I have NOT read :(

People ~*~ PLEASE ~*~ check out my books so I can get credits to feed my reading habbit :)

I thought I had this one, but mine is Plum Lovin'.  Sorry. 

Do you mean you can see now what is on folks' TBR piles?

I dont know what TBR piles are, but when I type in "Plum Lucky by Janet Evanovich" it says there is none listed, so I clicked not listed and it said there was three....

Thank you for the reply.

Karen, I checked the search for Plum Lucky. it only gives the option of posting 3 different formats of the book, HB, PB and Audio.

What you need to do is enter in the title, search All Books, and then when the results come up, add it to your wish list.

OK I did it again and it says "unposted" I took that to mean maybe someone had it listed but took it off????

I do have it on my wish list, but I thought the "unposted" meant that it was available and might still be?

Thank you so much Kathryn and Linda :)

Karen, I see that you are a newbie and I think I know where your confusion is coming from.  When you type Plum Lucky into the search window, it pulls up three different versions of the book.  However none of those books are currently posted in the system, meaning that they are not available to be sent.  People who have the book may not have read it yet.  There are lots of people that have this book on their wishlists (almost 300 for the regular hardcover) so when the book does get posted in to the system, it will go to the person that is first on the list.   You say you have this book on your wishlist, so I guess you will just have to wait until you get to the top of the list and then it will be sent to you.  I hope this makes sense.

I am typing in "Plum Lucky by Janet Evanovich", it comes up with "0" books available, so I click the "offline" books and it comes up with three.  " HB, HB, AUDIO".   I just thought that meant three people had this book but the posting had ended (which I dont even know is possible)...

BUT thank you everyone for the replys you all have been very helpful.  :)

I was hoping to have some books to mail today, but ~not~    so come on you read-a-holics pick some of my books so I can pick some more :)   :)   :)

 

Thank you again everyone,

Karen

It sounds to me like you are looking at WL books. The #3 would be the number of people who have that edition on their WL.  If it doesn't give you the Order This Book button, then the book is not posted on PBS.  You have to put it on your WL and get in line.  If it says Order This book then you hit that button and the book request will get offered to someone.

Yeah he's a hottie for the Cowboy Swap I'm in on the Games board.  He's not doing what he looks like he's doing. In the full picture he's just opening his pants.

Still a HOTTIE... :)     sizzle   :)

Cross country move?  I hope it is going from bad to good for you :)

Been listing books all morning.  Trying to list some every hour instead of all of them at once.  Just hit 200.  I have at least 100 more to list :)   Listing is easy on here though...   SURE hope I get rid of at least 50 this week :)   I have a little bit of this and a whole lot of that :)

Karen, you might want to investigate the Book Bazaar forum. That's the best place to mention your shelf, run 2 for 1 deals, and get more orders.

Thank you Cathy for your post.

I haven't been on here but 6 or 7 days now, I have mailed off 8 books, only one has been received, and I ordered three books so far myself receiving only one.   I will run a 2 for 1 speical when nothing is moving...

I have loads of GOOD USED BOOKS, I am always reading, I love it.    I mail out as soon as someone requests it.

Thank you again Cathy.

Karen
