I just had a WL granted for an obscure and OP (but not valuable) book and recieved a PM from the member suggesting I visit their Amazon store to see if I wanted to buy any books from them to be shipped along with my WL item.

I feel this crosses the line regarding advertisement. Any thoughts?

I completely agree with you, I'd send in Feedback.

Advertising is a big no-no. I agree with Melanie. But I'd wait until the rare OOP book was in the mail first. wink

Over the line.  PBS will not be happy with that member.  But Lisa has a good point.  We want them to ship your book before they get slapped with a hold.

Thanks everyone for validating my first impression.  I had the same idea as Lisa--I'm waiting for the book to be mailed before I do anything! cheeky

Sigh. The book was never marked mailed and is timing out tonight.  Maybe because I didn't respond/buy something? I'll report him in the morning after the transaction cancels.

LOL Lisa!

He PMd this morning saying he did mail the book and would I please mark it received when it arrives.

I went ahead and sent the earlier correspondence to TPTB and will let you all know what they say.
