I've got some books that I want to post, but I was wondering if there was any way to tell how many copies are already available on PBS.  

One of the reasons I use PBS is to clear out clutter in my house.  If I post a book, but it is something like the 3,000th copy available on PBS, I'd rather just donate it to a thrift store rather than having it sit on my shelf for a year.  I know you can see how many people are wishing for a book, but is there any way to see how many are currently posted?

Add it to your Reminder List.  It will show how many copies are available.

Hey!  That works!  Never would have thought of it myself.

Thanks!

Some of those heavily posted books actually move pretty quickly.  I've also gotten rid of a lot of them through Box of Books.
