Hi all -

If I select "mail to a friend" on a book on my bookshelf, do I  then indicate who the book is going to?  How are credits accounted for?

Hi Theresa,

When you select "mail to a friend", you'll then get a window where you will enter the name/address. There are no credits involved. The book goes to your "Books to mail" section and then after you mark it mailed, it moves to your "En Route to me" section so you can mark it received once your friend gets it.

Hope this helps!

I use "mail to a friend" all the time.  It gives me a great, clean label with bar codes and 9-digit zips, which I figure will move better through the USPS than my clunky, handwritten label.

I recently purchased a very nice, brand-new cookbook for my sister.  It was wishlisted.  So I just went and found an ugly old textbook on my boss's bookcase, posted it by ISBN after checking that no one had it wishlisted.  Then I clicked "mail to a friend" and got a nice label to use for my sister's cookbook.

Thanks for the information.  Someone asked me how it worked, and I realized I had no idea!
