I have a copy of a fairly heavily wishlisted book that's unpostable due to my daughter tearing part of the back cover off. From the front the book looks just fine, and the pages are all intact and everything.


I would be happy to send this book to someone without getting a credit for it, because I know it doesn't meet the condition requirements. But there isn't a way to search wishlists for this book is there?


Can I post it and agree to send it and PM the person to see if they would like it even in this condition? If they refused then I could cancel the request and it would roll over to the next person, right? I'd be happy to go through the entire list of people looking for it if I could give it a new home.

I would post it in the Bazaar or go to that genre's forum and see if there is a WL thread. Just make sure to mention the condition.

ETA: No, there isn't a way to search everyone's WLs since PBS is runs on the FIFO system.

You can't post it, even if you PM the requester in advance. Like Courtney said, try the Bazaar. Here is a link to the unpostable WL book thread.

Thanks! Someone's already claimed it over there.
