Kind of a silly little thing...

I love the link that shows where a PBS swaped book has travelled from.

My sister lives out of state and I always mail her the books I have that she also likes. She is also a PBS member so when she is done reading them she will then post the back into the system. I was wonder if it was possible have the system know that they are swapped from me to her so we don't break the chain of where the book has traveled from. Some of the books I'm done reading are wish listed books so if I put them on my shelf my sister wouldn't be able to request them.

hmmm....I know there is a way to post a book to someone's wishlist, because someone just did that for me.  It was a wishlisted book and somehow she bypassed the FIFO.  Maybe someone else will chime it.

For wishlisted books, your sister can put the book on her wishlist and you can then post the book to her wishlist (you browse her wishlist, find the book in the list (but don't click on the book's detail link), and press "post".  The followup screen should say at the top that you are posting to <membername>.  If it doesn't, back out.

For non-wishlisted books, your sister can request  the book off your shelf.
