Maybe I'm missing it, but if I see a book on the Home page in the Recently Posted Books Available for Request... list and would like to see other books posted by the same member of a book displayed here, is there a way to see those? I can't seem to find the specific member who posted the book. Thanks

You can't look up a specific member who posted a book.  Books are ordered in a first in first out basis. So if there are other copies already posted to PBS the order goes to the 1st person to post the book.  You have to order a book to see who has it posted. Unless you post in the book bazaar what book you're looking for and someone answers.  You can search the boxer lists withoug being a member but it will only show you if any boxers have the book posted.

Sigh... my intention was to see other books posted by the same member. If a rare book is posted, then I'd like to scan other books posted by the same member; perhaps also rare.

Thanks for your quick answer.

Well you could order the book and hit order more from member, then don't complete the order. But it'll go to the 1st person who posted the book.  If they are rare book than that might be the only copy posted.

One thing you could try is to open the info. about the recently-posted book and see if there was a review written on that day.  The person who wrote that review may turn out to be the one who posted that copy of the book.

I think someone did that for a book that I posted; it was one that had over 50 copies in the system, but was ordered from my shelf the same day I posted it (with my review).
