I am interested in any of the Warriors books by Erin Hunter; paperback or hardcover are acceptable.  Thanks to a couple wonderful members, I have the first, second, and sixth books, as well as book one and two of The New Prophecy series.  

I understand there's around 30 books, including some manga... so any offers and any combination of books will be considered-- it is not necessary for your books to be in chronological order-- we want em all eventually anyway  :)

I do ask that books come from a smoke-free environment.

Please contact me with your information via PM; I *try* to check in daily.

 

Thank you!!!  

 

Kendra

My daughter is reading these and they appear to me mostly WL. It's against the rules to ask to get WL books like this unless you at the top of the WL.

wow.  I guess I didnt realize that.  

I know a person can choose to post a wishlisted book directly to the wishing member, so I assumed it was acceptable to advertise one's "wants" to this end.

 

I suppose I should thank you for bringing my error to my attention.  Perhaps it would be more proper to post an ad that appeals to persons wishing to mail out multiples only??  

Do you have any suggestions (within acceptable practice, naturally)???

Klynn, there is nowhere on the site that it is acceptable to ask for Wish Listed books, it is considered unfair to ask to skip over everyone in front of you.

In the Bazaar there are some rules that are in addition to the site rules, you can find them in the red sticky at the top of this forum for How to Use...

The person who has the WL books can look to find someone who wants more than 1 to save on postage. But they don't allow the requestor to ask for WL books like this. What you can do is: add them to your WL and keep an eye on the Multiple WL thread on this forum and in the forum for that genre. 

I have a ton of these but my daughter is not ready to part with them.  I've added quite a few to my WL and the lines weren't very long and moved quickly.  Also if you have them on your WL it's possible that when one comes up on your WL they might offer you others to save on postage.  Many members will do this when they have more than 1 WL book in a series.  Post 1 and then see if that person wants the others that go with it.

ah... thank you for trying to clarify for me! :) let me see if I have it right: it is the responsibility of the seeker to watch for a person who desires to send out multiples (aka hoping a person w such a desire actually advertises this fact)... but it is not acceptable for a seeker to advertise that they are willing to purchase multiples...? I think this is what you are telling me; altho it seems even the sender advertising a desire for mailing multiples would defeat the wishlist fifo system just as much as my asking for multiples would. It really seems the same to me. I'm not trying to be thick... but what's the difference? Where is the line?

I don't know. Probably because when a sender does it, it helps them save postage.  But when the wisher does it, it's like begging to cut in front of the line.  Maybe they are worried the boards will be loaded with nothing but people begging for WL books to be posted to them. 

I think the bulk of requests go through FIFO.  It's really a very small percentage of members that even come onto the message boards. Most members just trade books and that's that.  They don't take the time to check out the rest of the site or they just don't want to put the effort into it.  The people who use the Book Bazaar and other threads are a minority.  And it does help in the long run. If findind someone to post multiples too stretches someone's postage budget a little further than it allows them to post more books into the system.  I'm an active forum user and I would say that 75% of what I post goes to the WL FIFO.  But I  try to ship and multiples when I can.
