Is there a way to include "freebie" books on your Transaction Archive or do you just have to delete them from your bookshelf?  I would like to have them appear in Transactions for future reference, but I can't seem to find a way to do that.

Thanks for your input!

You could use mail to a friend and type in the address of where the book is going.

  That's a great idea.  I'll try that.  Thanks Rebecca!

I do it so I print out the sending book without postage, then use that label for the send book to a friend address. Then reprint the label for both books, with postage if I'm going to use it. Otherwise, you need to get the correct format address from the other member.

This removes the book from your shelf. But it is listed in the transaction archive as sent from you to you. You also have to manually mark it received to remove it from your My Account page.

But I love not having to remember to remove the book. Worth that extra step for me. Hunting the house for a deal book that I had already mailed? Not anymore.
