The most common reason Amanda and I are having to contact members lately seems to be the issue of Wish List books. If you read the rules of the Book Bazaar listed in the red sticky thread at the top of the forum http://www.paperbackswap.com/How-Use-Forum-Please-Read/topic/39715/ you will see that Offering and Requesting postable Wish List books are not allowed in the Forums.

General Rules in the Book Bazaar:


(6) No trying to jump the Wish List "line" by offering or asking for postable Wish Listed books.  Postable Wish Listed books should be posted and swapped "officially".  This of course does not apply to posts advertising an alternate ISBN  (or non-ISBN version) of a Wish Listed title; it is fine to advertise that you have those posted to your account Bookshelf.

The site has allowed us one monthly WL Multiples thread where, under certain rules listed there, we are able to offer postable Wish List books in multiples in order to save on shipping costs and maybe get more wishes granted to PBS members. But that is the only thread in the Book Bazaar in which people can offer postable Wish List books. You cannot start your own thread to offer postable Wish List books and no where can Wish List books be asked for, that isn't fair to the people waiting in line. If you are going to offer in the monthly Wish List Multiples thread, please make sure to review the rules posted there.

If you are searching for books, you do need to check the Wish List status on the books before posting and whenever you bump your post (which is really a new request for the books) so that you are not jumping a Wish List line. If you are offering a series of books, please make sure to check their Wish List status and if you have 2 or more that are Wish Listed, the only place they can be offered is in the Multiples thread.

Please be fair to your fellow PBS members and follow these rules in regards to Wish List books.

You can ask for books that have available versions, with some versions wish listed Bonnie, that is OK as long as the book is available to order when asked for. It always helps to have the PBS list for what you are looking for, that way we see it is not wish listed easier.
