Today, I got a notice that my wish was granted for a book that I've been offered a bunch of times and then turned down for my RC.  Today, the sender accepted (YAY!  I can't wait to read it!).  I looked at her bookshelf, saw something else that looked great and immediately wanted as well, but didn't have anymore credits (I am bad with budgeting.  I will never learn.).  I PMed her, asked if she would send it despite my not having credits, and she agreed.  Just like that.  No "sure, but when you have credits, buddy me one".  No "sorry, I only make deals with people I know". 

It was just SO NICE.

I think we all remember when we were new to PBS and there were just SO MANY books we wanted and how few credits we had to get them all.

There are a lot of great members here.

Wouldn't it be a great for that person if you DID buddy her a credit as soon as you had a spare one!  She wouldn't be expecting it, and sounds like he/she really deserves it.  Just a thought....     :)     D.
