Take a look, for example, at this book:

 

http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780764567568-How+to+Cook+Everything+The+Basics

 

it appears as posted today (12/31/08) but it cannot be ordered. Can someone tell me why?

 

thanks.

It's a Wish List (WL) book.  Do you see where it says Members Wishing: 57.  There are 57 people in line ahead of you for this book.

Just because it's posted, doesn't mean it's posted for everyone.
