I have been waiting for a certain book all week.  I need it for a book club.  I've already lost a week waiting for the other member(s) to send it.  I'm wondering if I could just post the title here in the forum, asking for the book.  If someone has it, I could request it straight from that member.  That way they can send it to me, get credit, and I can start reading it as soon as possible.  Everyone's happy.  Is this allowed?

I've seen that done in the Bazaar as well as other forums before...

As long as it's not a wishlisted book, you can post in the Bazaar or in the genre the book is in. If it's a wishlisted book, you have to wait in line with everyone else. Unless you request an unpostable copy. Does that make sense?

Are you saying you want to get another order on its way to your house so you have a better chance of getting at least one of them in time for your book club?

If so, you can have somone else order it for you and have it shipped to your address.

I never thought of that.  I ended up buying the book from Barnes & Noble for only $7 yesterday.  I'll know more for the next book I'll need for my book club.  Thanks for your info!
