I'm putting this in a separate thread in case there are others like me that had no idea you can do that!!  :-)  I don't actually know *how* to do it, but now that I know it's possible next time I look at a deal I'll hunt for the way to make it work.  I accepted a wishlist book just this morning and opened the person's shelf to see if I wanted to "order more from member"... and that person had nearly 800 books listed!!!  :-0  Needless to say, the minute I saw that number I immediately stopped looking--and I thought 200 books was too much!  :-p

I can't remember where I posted the tip, but you can sort people's booklists by genre, or date listed, etc.  Just click on the "search/browse by genre" tab on the upper right of their shelf page.  If someone has over 100 books, I sort by "children's" and then also by "professional & techinical - education" to find stuff I really want.  If someone posts and says "I just added 20 new books", there's no need to go through their whole entire shelf (especially if it's someone on the HS forum whose shelf you've seen over and over).  Just do a "sort by date" and then "descending" and then it will list the newest books first.
