I got a WL book posted today and it was accepted and has already been mailed out. I have never, ever seen that happen so quickly. I am quite shocked. It seem that whenever I get a WL posted, it takes forever to get accepted and then I have to wait again for the person to mail it.....Just a nice thing that happened today that I thought I would share.

I also received a book today from Tx (I live in WA state) and it was mailed on Monday!!!! What a great week for WL books........(doing a little happy dance) =)

Yay! I'm hoping that I will finally get a sender to either accept or mail California Demon to me. First one either never got sent, or it got lost in the mail. Second one, sender never responded to book request. Tried again today, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I do that all the time, and have had it done for me many times too. I have my whole WL set to autorequest, and sometimes I wake up, check PBS to find that the night-owls have been out, posted books, accepted and mailed them already. Love, love, LOVE that auto-request! :)

I'm with Cheryl -- autorequest often speeds those books to me. I also am proud to say that my books always go out within 24 hours, usually faster. There is something about those WL books that make me sooo anxious to get them and I try to do the same for others.
