how do you let them know you have posted in your bookshelf?? I see severeal people have requested a few books I have listed yet I don't see their names so I can't really communicate to them    Make sense?

 

Thanks!

Jennifer

You post the books and the first person in line who has it wishlisted gets the order. Once you accept that you can send the book, then there is a PM button where you can contact them if need be.

You can't see who is wishing for what ahead of time except by looking at a given person's wishlist. PBS operates primarily on FIFO (first in, first out) so there's really no need to know ahead of time who wants the book.

The system also goes by ISBN numbers.  It's possible that the books you posted have different ISBNs than the books people have WLed.
