Not only have I suddenly gotten a bunch of wish list books, but several books have been requested off my shelf the last 2 weeks.  It's great, just wondered if anyone else noticed an uptick in activity lately?

Yep!  I definitely noticed!  I put my shelf on hold for 3 weeks or so, give or take a few days... and when I took it off I had 4 wishlist offers... Most of the time I only get one a month, sometimes less than that.  And luckily I had enough credits to where I only had to buddy one :D

I've noticed it as well.  It's a good month for me if I get 2-4 orders.  I think I've sent out 8 books in the last 2 weeks and I've got another 2 to go out this weekend.

Actually, no. I haven't sent a book out in weeks. :-(

I'm sure it's the end of the summer and the fact that so many new people keep joining! Lots of wishlisted books being posted by the "newbies". I know that 2 of mine were on wishlist hold as soon as I posted them.

I mailed 4-5 books today, and I have two more requests!  Yay!  :)  I'm new, so I'm sure that has a lot to do with it.

I think its the back to school rush.  I mailed out 13 books today before I even put up a deal on my shelf.  I have seven more wishlist books to mail and I have almost seven wishlist books coming to me.  It's kinda nice...:)
