Hello - I saw a note in another thread where a member said that we could post a book to her WL. Does that mean that if I am browsing a member's WL and have one - I can direct it to them by using the Post button there?

yes you can.  When you go to post it there should be a box that pops up that says you are posting to Suzy Q's wish list (at least that is what I got yesterday) and then it will give you all the same other pop up boxes as if you were posting it in general

If you post from the book's description page, it'll post it direct to FIFO.  So after you make sure the ISBN matches, go back to the person's WL and post it from there, not the description page.

Do we have to add the book to our Bookshelf first or just post directly?

Post directly.

If you add it to your shelf it'll get snagged by FIFO.

(Not that I am encouraging this. Other than when you have multiple books on someone's WL and thus can save shipping, I think FIFO is an excellent setup.)

Thanks gang for the clarification. I was not sure how all of this worked. Certainly one of the questions I had!

Thanks again!
