My poor wishlist is feeling lonely! I guess because it is summer time, things aren't moving as fast here. In March, April and May, I was sending and getting a handful of books. Now, it so few and far between. I have been guilty of contributing to this also because I have a little stack of books that I need to get listed. Anybody else noticing a slowdown in getting or sending books? (Grin) Maybe I am just feeling a little pouty today.

Actually I'm having a little surge -- steadily sending out one or two a week right now and I have 2 on the way and waiting for another two for me.

Actually, I have had several books posted from my wishlist in the past couple of weeks after a long dry spell. And I have had orders fairly steady from my bookshelf even before I started running the deal I am running now.

I have had A LOT of books come thru off my WL in June after a slow spring...so many that I have depleted my 20+ credits--good & bad problem to have.  :)  I am moving a few books off my shelf but they sure aren't flying!  Luckily I went to some yard sales on Sat. & found some books that were WL'd (like the new John Grisham-The Appeal for 50cents amongst many others) and some others that aren't on WLs but will "pad" my shelf.  I need to sit down & go thru all the WL'd books I bought & decide what to post/what to keep for now. 

Hang in there Pat, they are bound to be posted!

Yeah, I've had so many book offers that I've depleted my stash, too...30 credits in JUNE! I've also sent a ton of books, so many that I had to put my shelf on hold.

Pat, I looked at your wishlist to see if I had any of those books to post, but I don't.  I wish I could help you out!
