Today, I decided to check my WL to Ebook Fling and lo and behold, one of my books was available.  Yeah!

After doing that, I added some books to MyBooks.  I flung 9 out of 20. 

My question is how long does it take for the flings to show?  I use the "walk me through it" system.  I flung them all, but 6 are still showing as being ready to fling.  Is there a delay between you flinging them and them moving off your "to fling" list?

I have gotten 3 credits, so I know those worked. 

Thanks!

Some are Quick Some Are Slow!  Not sure why unless they Quicker ones the Recievers are online & download them where the Slow ones no one is online!    Congrats on all your flings LOL

Barbara, I'm so excited :D  (It doesn't take much)  i got "Hand That First Held Mine" by maggic O'Farrell, which has been on my PBS WL for several months, so I'm happy about that.  7 of my flings have gone through.  There are 2 pending, so I'll be patient with that.

I didn't think I would have so many books to fling.  They are freebies that I got when I first got my Nook.

Barbara, is a month the lending period for Kindle books?  Nook books are 14 days, I think.

That's the best part.  The books I got for free aren't any longer for the most part.  Now others are interested in these books.  Very nice!

It is 14 days also BUT When I contacted Amazon they said was a Glich so they didnt start counting until the other person actually Recieved the eBook!   The freebies Never had problem LOL  I Happy to Loan them to a person I know But with eFling you dont know who is getting them. 

I have 11 eFling crs & yet to find 1 ebook I want....  ugh
