I posted a lot of books last night and 5 were on wish lists (yeah!) but now I'm waiting on them to check their email or account to see the book is there for them.  I know they have 48 hours, I'm just impatient!  I want them all to accept so I can make 1 run to the post office. I have another book that was auto-wish listed so that persons book is waiting until I can get others to accept the book.

I get the same way about the waiting period.

Me too!  I posted 2 books yesterday that were wishlisted.  It took the first person over 24 hours to respond and the second person still has not.  I was hoping to get both books out today on my PO run.

Hang in there.  I'm sure some (if not all!) of those 5 will be requested soon!

You can post any of mine!  :D  Most of them are on auto-request; a few aren't because they are earmarked for someone else and I have to change the address.

and then I just posted a bunch more and one of the hardbacks is in that 1 hour wait period....come on people, check your accounts!!!   why can't you be on here like I am, at least 3 times a day?!  LOL

I know 3 of the books have a waiting list, the other 2 paperbacks surprised me at being on someone's wish list but hey, I'm not objecting!

I have found lately that many of my books the books that I post that are WL'd are timing out.  I don't know why - I guess the person who WL'd them didn't have enough credits.  STILL, I wish they would just respond "no" to the request so that it can roll over to the next person in line.
