Hi, I have three novels by Charlaine Harris that are wish listed and I am sending one to the member first on the list.  Is it alright to offer her the other two so that I can save on the postage?  Thanks for your help.  Jack

Yes, that is completely fine.

That's one way to handle it Jack, and I've seen no forum complaints from members offered other books in the series.  Go for it!

Everytime I post a WL book or get a book request I look to see if I have one of their WL books to see if I have anything in my TBR that I'd have time to read.  I've only been turned down once by a die-hard FIFO follower.  I would ask them first.  If they are out of credits they could lose their place in line if they have to cancel or it times out.  I know I would feel quilty if they had to scramble around to buy credits for a book they weren't expecting to be offered for a while.

If they don;t have the credits, you can always offer send it to them and they give you a credit when they get it.

I have often 'loaned' credits this way and they have always been returned
