I am looking for a series from a particular author (there are 6 books in the series).  I am willing to pay full price for all the books (or broker a deal) but would rather get them all from the same seller.   Is there anywhere you can post "Looking for all the books by "Author" in their "series name"?

I also have most of the books in a favored author's series and would like to have them go as a group.  So, again, is there a way to post them as a group?

Kate, there are forums for genres. Sometimes there is a permanent thread at the top of the forum. Post your request there. I have gotten several books for an author's series that way.

There is also a thread in the Bazaar "November - Books you are looking for" (something like that) - and you can ask that you'd like to get them all from one person if possible. A lot of people look at that one, it's updated each month, and sometimes have what you want even though it's not on their shelf.

The only key with the book bazaar is you can not ask for the book if they are wishlisted.   If they are, then you can go to the genre forums and look for a thread called " is this on your Wishlist"  You can see if anyone has posted the books.   Not all genre forums have this thread.

If they are not wishlisted, then the book bazaar (http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=174521) or genre forums (many but not all) will have a thread called is this on your bookshelf.  There you can list books you are looking for and if a memember has the book(s) they can contact you.

You are allowed to offer any WL book or group.  Sending them out as a set saves you postage.  That is permitted.  Just not asking.
