One of my friends posted a WL book to me ... and now that it is mailed, there is a message across the book listing in the "Books En Route" tab that tells me "You were selected to receive this Wish List book because Your Friend XXXXXX subscribes to our PBS Gold Key Membership Service".

I think that's cool. And good advertising. Makes me want to go post some WL books.

That is a cool feature.  Now I wanna go post some wishlist books too!  LOL  Or better yet,  have someone post a book to me so I can see the message.

 Last I knew Sara doesn't stand to gain anything from the site so this would be an opinion shared, NOT marketing. But alas, some people never miss an oppertunity to be negative.

 

 As for the OP, I hope to see the same message soon! LOL

I took Rob to mean PBS took the opportunity to advertise.

I didn't see anything negative about the comment.  To me - it was just a comment.

Isn't it interesting how we read things so differently?

I love the fact that my friends who are not Gold Key member benefit from my membership.

I like that too. And it is just amazing how many friend requests I have gotten since I became a Gold Key member! More in a week than I normally have in 6 months! Guess being a Gold Key member makes you popular with others...

 Sorry Rob, if I was wrong and read into that! I keep rereading it and just not seeing it another way but that could be a "me" issue and not how you intended.

I like that message. I can't wait to receive a book from one of my Gold Key Friends.

I also like that you get to choose which friend get's the book.

Ah, now I feel unpopular (just kidding).  I haven't had any new friend requests, but I'm happy to accept them if I ever do.

I also love the posting to a friend thing, though I haven't done it yet. I have some wish list books to post, but know I can't mail anything now, so am waiting a bit.
