Subject: Searching for multiple books from one member

I am looking for approx. 25 books and would like to know if there is a way I can search by entering the book names and it will show which member posted most of the books I want, so they can do bulk mailing.

The only way I have tried doing this is enter a book name, click to order this book and check that members other books avilable. It makes it a lengthy process. Because if there is 3 available of 1st book listed, I have to go thru all 3 members lists to see if they have any of the other books I'm looking for. By placing order then deleting order to check each members lists out.

Just thought there might be a shortcut I don't know about. If there is no way of doing this... it could be a suggestion for PBS future upgrade.

Thank you for your time.

No, I'd suggest posting on the book bazaar with the books you want and saying you want to save someone on postage.

You can also search boxer shelves without being a boxer.  If you open multiple windows you might be able to find people who have multiples. 

I would try the book bazaar first.

Place your cursor over the Cummunity tab in the silver gray bar near the top of any PBS window, select Discussion Forums, then scroll down to find Book Bazaar.

It's a good idea to read the red stickie at the top regarding "How to use this forum", and also to browse through some of the postings to get a feel for it before posting to it yourself.

The Book Bazaar is the one with the circus tent logo on the left.

Thank you for pointing me in the direction of the Book Bazaar.

My Hardback Mystery/Thriller "wanted" list is now posted.

Thanks for being so helpful.
