Is everyone trying to build up their credits for Christmas? I've received 5 wishlist books this month, and we're only on day 10! (well, OK, technically 2 are still in the mail). And I'm not even counting the two I searched for and found already posted. I'm having a great month!

I think all those posts about listing WL books to make our PBS members Holidays a little merrier is working! I know I've listed 12 since Thanksgiving.

I've posted WL books, but it's preparatory to clearing off my shelves and making a donation to Salvation Army.    A lot of what doesn't get requested by the end of the year will be donated for the tax deduction.

Well I posted 5 WL books recently.  3 were ones I read over the long Thanksgiving weekend.  1 was one I found at a thrift store for .50 and had no interest in reading.

I posted ~10 WL books immediately after Thanksgiving.  They were given to me by a friend when I saw her for the holiday.  It's nice making wishes come true!  And I have been lucky in return, having had 5 WL books offered to me too!

I just put my account back on hold until after the Holidays.  I'm going out town anyway so this way there'll be less books waiting for me to mark them received.  I need to catch up on my WL TBR books.

My wishlist has been moving really slowly lately :( I've been posting a bunch of WL books in the past week or two, though, so hopefully I'm helping other people's lists move a bit faster.

I only got 1 wish list offer for christmas.  it was a christmas related book.  I got it today, complete with festive red stain accenting a typical patch of water damage.  I sent my message, and I can't wait for the response accusing me of being without christmas spirit because of the RWP.

How can you tell which books are wishlisted by other members? I like to keep some books after reading them, but if I knew that someone else really wanted it, I might post it on here. Especiallly so someone could enjoy it for the holidays.

Nevermind, I just found the Club Wish List. This site has so many features, I find something new everytime I log on.
