I was a member and listed some book, but somehow it glitched and I can't get back in. It won't send me a new password as it says my email addy does't exist, but when I try to re-join it says my email addy is already joined up.

I've sent them several emails, filled out the problem form, and it's been probably around a month now and no response. But I keep getting the newsletter, so I know they have the correct addy. I just can't get in at all.

So I've given up, and now use Booklending.com and k.booksformyereader.com

Each has things I like and don't like, but at least I can get in!

That really sucks Cindy!  I hope they will eventually get back to you.  I am sure they are busy building up the site but a month!?!?  Geez!  That is too long to not reply to someone who wants to use your site! 

I have successfully borrowed 2 books from the site and am so in love!  It's really great for a time like now when I can't afford to buy books but want to continue to use my ereader.  I have a HUGE wishlist so I know when my cash flow starts back up again, I will have plenty of books to lend after I buy them. smiley

To Barbara...I have 2 books posted right now for lending.  One is a full novel, Deception by Jonathan Kellerman and one is a novella, Love is Murder by Allison Brennan.  I enjoyed both. 

I use a Pandigital Novel ereader/tablet.  It runs on the Android and Nook system.  I wasn't crazy about the interface when I 1st got it but it did what I needed it to do so I was ok with it.  I really like it much better with the newest update.  It is more like a tablet and it is much easier to use.

I have 4 PBS WLd books posted on ebookfling, but haven't received any requests. I found that odd.
