I like to check out other's bookshelves because it is so much more interesting than doing a search or even checking the day's new listings - although that can be fun, too.  It gets me in a world of "want", though.  But I digress - how do I check out people who post on the forums and don't have a link?

Some people have their bookshelf set on "private" - but most are public :)

How do people who have their bookshelf on private expect to get orders?

I was wondering the same thing Donna is. I guess they just rely on the FIFO??

FIFO. Just like everyone else.

If you've got credits to spare, you don't have to be in a huge hurry to get orders. Some of us don't have much, if anything, in the bookshelf at all, and just post WL'd books as we see them come up and find one to post. I just posted about 19 of them. They weren't on my bookshelf long enough to matter to anyone else.

Having just a few books on your bookshelf does seem to freak some people out. They don't want to order because they think it's someone who isn't active anymore and won't send out.
