Recently I posted about 60 books in a couple days and 21 were requested almost immediately.  How do people find books sooo quickly?  What is it I don't know?

You've got a lot of popular books! You might want to consider placing your account on hold while you deal with mailing out your 21requests. That's a bit overwhelming.

Judging by what is left on your bookshelf, the ones that went fast were probably other gardening or craft books or cooking books. Those are often on people's Wish Lists and I bet that's how they got requested so quickly.

This post made me smile because usually people are posting the opposite...."why am I not getting any requests?"

I'd have to say it was your lucky day.

Yeah, those wish list books get snapped up pretty fast.  I've never had 21 at one time, but I did get about 18 requests at one go once.  So I know how you feel! 

Now I always check the books I post first to see if they are wish listed.  That way I know when I post them if they'll get requested right away.
