One book has 1 wisher, the other book has 2 wishers.  I would like to send both books to the same wisher, to save on postage.

Is there a way that I can do this.

You can post the books in the Book Bazaar, here's thse current thread for Wishlist Multiples.

Depending on your genre, some of the specific forums have their own wishlist threads (such as romance and paranormal)...just mention you would like to send the books together.

Also, in case this isn't too basic, there is no guarantee that the member wishing for book A is one of the 2 members wishing for book B -- they could be 3 separate members, and thus you won't be able to send them to the same person.

You can post one book. Accept...

Then PM the person to see if they're interested in the second book. If so, request a credit or post to their personal WL.

(I would not cancel the first book if they say "no".)

I did this for a whole pile of very old YA books with no ISBN. I also offered a deal if they wanted more.

Thank You everyone for the replies.  I learned of ways to do this from you.  Yes, this my first try on the forums.
