I just signed up for gold key and though I'm not exactly sure how it works, I think that your "friends" can tell whether they have books on your WL which makes it easier to post to you. Well, similar to real life (HAHAHA) I am lacking friends. (Actually, I just moved cross-country from NC to CA and so really, I DON'T have any friends as of being here two weeks. PBS is my lifeline!) Anyway, if no one on this board judges this as spammy, I'm recruiting anyone who likes to "Friend" me. I'll do the same. If you're wanting something similar, please feel free to do a "me too" post at the bottom of this and others can friend you (I'll also friend you back of course).

Seriously, if this is some kind of protocol breech, please refrain from eviscerating me (haha) and instead, just someone drop me a PM. I will erase it as soon as I get your message the next time I'm online. But otherwise, here's to opening that "gold door" to new friends! :-)

I have my friend thing set to auto and I don't care if anyone sends me a friend request just  because I have the Gold Key.  As far as I'm concerned a bigger friend list means a bigger opportunity to ship in multiples and save postage.

Thanks everyone! And thanks for the tip on auto-request. I just turned it on and hope it's a friends bonanza! :-) I'm about to turn off the computer for the day today but will check (and accept requests) tomorrow!

Well, we don't have any books or wishes in common, so we probably won't be swapping much, but I've sent you a friend request anyway.

I was just up in your new area a couple weeks ago, visiting my parents in Novato. It was a good place to grow up, and I hope you'll like it there. This is one of the nicest times of year too, so enjoy the Fall before the rainy season starts!

Actually, Heather, it's nice that you're asking. You cannot imagine how many people just started sending friend requests without never even talking to the person. :) (I think there was a thread or two about it a while back.)

I'm down, so I added you, HeatherandSolo.  The more the merrier, right?

Heather we are already friends, cause we have very similiar interests in books, but I am always looking to expand my "friend list" too.  Anyone can feel free to add me:)

I added quite of few of you, and anyone who'd like to can feel free to add me as well.  I'm quite friendly, and hardly ever bite.   Great idea for a thread!

I went through the list of everyone on this thread, and think I got everyone. 

I haven't been swapping many books lately, but I'd love to make use of my Gold Key membership. I will probably be taking my account off hold this weekend and posting some things!

I haven't been posting much lately either. But I'm low on credits and my plan is to start reading some WL books so I can take my WL off hold. I even put myself on hold in my virtual boxes so I can catch up. 

I should run some ISBNS through and see who has more than 1 of my TBR books on their WL.

My friend list is on auto also.  Feel free to friend me.  Bookshelf is not huge but I do read WL books so they don't appear.  I lean toward paranormal, historical fiction and cozies with a few hardcore mysteries thrown in once in awhile.

I friended Heather (a fellow Cat person, with a very interesting WL -- lots of ideas there!) and friend requested a few others of you who indicated you'd like more friends as well.  (I'm also open to friend requests also (on Auto-Accept) and willing to answer any site questions anyone may have!!!)
