I am wishing for ALL these books. Just wondered if anyone had any they would like to swap with me for! (I hope this is allowed, if not I apologize!) As you can see I am wanting to make a tee-shirt quilt! LOL! I will take unpostables for quite a few of these. Just shoot me a PM and describe the condition.  thanks!

Sorry, not allowed. Unless you are #1 on every one of those books, then you could post in the #1 on WL thread. Otherwise this is considered "line jumping" and is frowned upon. This is mentioned in the red sticky thread about posting in forum up top. Hope that helps! Hope you get your wishes granted soon! :)

ETA: Your OP states this "I will take unpostables for quite a few of these" If you were to change that (and be willing to) take ONLY unpostables, I imagine you would probably be okay. But I'm not sure.. That is kind of a fine line. Maybe a TG or someone could help you better.

I wasn't sure since I was asking for unpostables.

Nope... not allowed. If it was I'm sure lots of members would be asking for their WL books...I know I would. LOL!

Asking for unpostables is the fine line many try to walk since the rules say postable, but Bernie the Book Bazaar Czar has said nope to this in the past, you are still asking for WL books. 

With the title, list, and the statement saying you would take unpostables for "quite a few" instead of saying you want unpostables pretty much breaks the rule.  It really isn't considerate to the people in front of you IMO. You wouldn't want someone behind you to be asking for the books you've been waiting for longer, so you probably shouldn't do it to others.

(6) No trying to jump the Wish List "line" by offering or asking for postable Wish Listed books.

It seems to be acceptable now to offer unpostable wishlisted books for a credit as long as the damage is made known to the requestor.  Why, then, shouldn't we be allowed to request unpostable wishlisted books and pay a credit, even though it appears to "jump the line"?

I agree that the OP did not make clear that ANY of her titles could be unpostables; her statement was too vague.

Just asking!!
