How do you do this and what does it accomplish?  If you do this, do this move the person whose WL you post to in front of everyone else who has the book on WL?

Thanks, I've seen this terminology, and would like to understand,

To post to someone's wishlist, all you have to do is be looking at it, and click on the book's "Post this" button.  A window will come up verifying that you are posting to "XXX"'s wishlist.  So if they were #1 or #100, they are getting the book YOU will be mailing out.

From the Help Center for Can I post directly to someone's Wish List:


Yes.  If you have a book that is on someone's personal Wish List, then all you need to do to offer that book directly to that member (and NOT to the first person on the Wish List) is to go to the member's Wish List and click the button there.  Be sure the ISBN on your book matches the ISBN on her Wish List!

  • Your book will be offered to that member first, no matter where she is in the Wish List for that book.
  • If that member does not request the book, it will then be offered to the first person on the wish list and continue to be offered until someone requests it or until it is Posted into the general library.

We hope that members do not do this too often, as FIFO is really the fairest way of swapping books, but they are YOUR books, and we wanted to offer this option to members who wished to use it.
