I just want to remind members that the rules of the Book Bazaar (located in the red sticky at the top of the forum How to use this forum - please read before posting here!team_post.png) state that no postable Wish List books can be offered in this Forum. This of course does not apply to alternate versions where your ISBN (or book without an ISBN) is not Wish Listed but another version is, you are welcome to post and highlight those, and you are welcome to advertise your unpostables.

The only exceptions to this rule are the monthly Wish List Multiples ***AUGUST 2012 Wishlist Multiples*** started by Amanda each month (or Kathy or I in Amanda's absence) or a complete set or series that does not qualify to be in there because it only has one Wish Listed book in it.  These are the only exceptions. Wish List Multiples need to be in that thread under the rules listed in the first post there (no unpostables can be offered, no ARCs etc) or they cannot be offered in the Book Bazaar.

We do let sets/series with only one Wish Listed book be offered outside of that thread because the Help Center says that boxed sets can be offered in the Bazaar to keep them together. But the set/series does need to be a true set/series, not a few random books out of a larger series or from the same author, they need to be a complete set or pretty close to one - you can always PM Amanda or I to ask - and only contain one Wish Listed book to be outside of the Multiples thread. Once there are 2 or more Wish Listed, the set/series needs to go into the Wish List Multiples thread.

We used to not be able to offer Wish Listed books at all in the Book Bazaar. The Multiples thread is a great option to us where members can offer WLed books they may not have due to the cost of shipping them individually. Unfortunately we need some rules to protect both sides of that transaction from abuse so lets keep it an option by posting the books where we need to. We try to be as hands off in the Bazaar as possible, but keep it as fair as possible to all members too.

What Melanie said.  wink  If we see a post that goes outside of these guidelines, we will PM the person and ask them to correct the post and place it in the correct location.  Please don't feel like we are picking on you...we try to be as nice as possible when doing this.  It's always a great idea to peruse the rules of any forum before posting there...and as always, don't hesitate to contact one of us if you have questions!
