Oh, I really enjoyed both of Herman's "sex" books! They were both great fun to read! Someone should snatch this up. ;-)

I just posted this book, it's already been requested by whoever was #1 on the wishlist.  Why don't you do the same?  I'm sure there are more wishers.

I just posted it--it's on my shelf.  No wishers.  I had just figured I'd offer it here first, since I've been lucky enough to get books I've wanted by seeing others post about them here in the HF forum.

Thanks for thinking of us, Sheryl! I love posting wishlist books, but I love sharing with my buddies too. ;-)

I just did a search for this book and it shows 25 wishers for the hardback & 27 for the paperback - might want to check & see if your ISBN is correct.

It is.  This particular ISBN has no WL but I know many people that post in this forum have a full WL, so even though it's not WL, someone here might be interested.  If not, it is on my shelf for anyone to order.

I sometimes get "Book similar to your wish list book" notices - usually for some Jean Plaidy books that I am trying to upgrade my PB into HB.  It's just an FYI thing and I usually pass because they're usually PB.  If some members get a similar notice for this book, you should find a taker soon, with al those people wishing for the other ISBN versions.

That is one thing I wish was offered as an option here at PBS - the choice, when we put a book on our wish list - to wish for "any printed version" when we just want to read the book and don't care what reisssue or cover type it is.  I think a lot of people would get more wished for books that way.

I totally agree!!!  I have many titles on my WL listed in multiple forms, because I really don't care what form it is, so long as the story on the pages is the same!

"one thing I wish was offered -when we put a book on our wish list - to wish for "any printed version" 

I totally agree.  It is the one feature of the web site I feel is sorely missing!  I end up wishing all the options for a book I am truly serious about and then if I get an offer, I have to spend some time removing all the other options from my wish list.  I have been surprised, for example, that my copy of Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard did not get snapped up, but it is an older copy (in perfect condition)  and the ISBN is not the same as the newer prints.  I keep wondering if the wishers don't know that it is available.  Oh well.

That's what is in my sig line but that's only good if someone sees it and posts to my WL. I truly wish that was an option.

edited to add, I really enjoyed the Sex with Kings/Queens books. Very lighthearted and funny. Good to know debauchery has been going on for quite some time. We tend to think the world has only recently gone to h*ll in a handbasket, but sooooo not true.

I have a copy of "5 people Who Died During Sex and other terribly tasteless lists" by Karl Shaw, if anyone is interested. 30 are wishing. PM if interested before Wed 11/26 when I'll post in the system.
