Who has any that are on my wishlist in their home in their secret stash of books?

Um, nope. Not allowed. And from someone whose a member going on 4 years? By now you'd have known that you can't ASK for books on your WL, because they're on other peoples' WL. And your post saying "secret stash" makes me think that you know this, too. Not a great example to set.

No, I am talking the secret stashes that your significant others don't know about because we all know we are all "book junkies".  Also, you can post so that if somone looks and they have something they can post, they can help move books along on wishlists.  Also, if someone is number one on a book which that is the case for many of mine, you can ask.

I took this to mean books that we have at home that we have not posted to PBS.  (Not everything I own is posted).  But that these could be books that we might be willing to post if we know that someone was interested in them.

That is correct Valerie.  I am talking about books that someone might be willing to post if they know someone wants them (especially if a person is low on credits).  Because I know that for my books, I am either number 1 on them or there is a long line for them so either way they would be requested by someone and even if I didn't get the book, that would help move wishlists along.

"Who has any that are on my wishlist"

IMO this sounds like you're asking for WL books to be posted to your WL. Which as Heather said, isn't allowed.

You could look in some of the discussion folders and see if anyone is getting ready to post some of the books you want.  Many people post books directly to other's wish lists.  Good luck in finding some of your books.

Sorry, Theresa, but the Rules of the BB say you cannot ask for WL books:

(6) No trying to jump the Wish List "line" by offering or asking for postable Wish Listed books.  Postable Wish Listed books should be posted and swapped "officially".  This of course does not apply to posts advertising an alternate ISBN  (or non-ISBN version) of a Wish Listed title; it is fine to advertise that you have those posted to your bookshelf.

Since that is what you are doing, asking people to post WL books to you, then it's not allowed.

What I was looking for was to see if anyone had any of my wishlisted books in different ISBN numbers, but was also trying to help move the wishlisted books along, (for example I am number 5 on the list of books--well someone has this book and posts it and it goes to the first person--well that is helping me out because then that moves me to number 4 etc.).  I am just trying to help move wishlisted books along and maybe get new books into the system that someone might not realize has been wishlisted.  I am sorry I even asked this question.
