If I want to find deals on books from my reminder list, is there a way of doing that?

I have found great deals on the Book Bazaar, however, I will find one from my reminder list and the rest sound good at the time I am looking at offers.  I would like to reduce the number on my reminder list without ordering one at a time or possibly ordering one and finding the same with other books from another.

I hope that made sense!!

Thanks for any input.

The only way is to advertise in the book bazaar with a list of your reminder books and ask if anyone wants to offer you a deal. You can try searching boxer shelves and see if anyone has more than one. You don't have ot be a boxer to search their shelves. But some people get really offended when people ask for a deal.  So make sure you are polite and it's a reasonable deal like 3 for 2 or 5 for 3/4 and not 3 for 1 or 4 for 1.  With postage rates going up again it's not really a good deal for the sender to do a 1 credit deal anymore.

Or you can start orders for some book and then look at their shelf before completing. Then PM someone if they have more than one.  But that can be time consuming.

I would like to reduce the number on my reminder list...

I'm not understanding why you want to reduce the number of books on your reminder list.  Our reminder list is unlimited.  Are you thinking of your wish list?

I've been reducing my reminder list (well sort of...out with the old in with the new) by becoming a  boxer and trying to trade around.

Thanks for the info.

Patty - I just want to reduce the number on my reminder list because I keep adding books to it, and end up ordering more that aren't on there because of different deals.  I was looking for a way to get deals on the books I've been wanting to read instead of ordering others.  Does that make sense?? 

 

Thanks again for the answers
