Are we allowed to post 2 copies of the same book at the same time (same ISBN)?  I came across a book at a used bookstore selling for $1 and was thinking about buying 2 of them and posting both copies.  2 People are currently WLing that book.

I would like to help 2 members get their wishes granted. How can I do this?

Jason, you can only post one copy at a time. But once you've accepted the first book request, you should be able to post the second.

(If it's not then, it'll be once you mark the first copy mailed... I just can't remember, LOL! Some help I am!)

ETA: You can post the second copy once you've mailed the first copy. From the Help Center:

  • Once you have mailed the first copy you can post another copy.
