i'm trying to fill out our daughter's Sweet Velley High collection, and there are certain books she wants.  could i post a list of what we're looking for somewhere, to see if one member might be able to send more than one book, saving that person postage?  would i do that in book bazaar?  if i search for a specific book, it looks like i have to order it before i can see if the member has others on our list.  am i missing something--is there a better way to do this?  thanks.

First, yes, you can post in the Book Bazaar that you are "Looking for Sweet Valley High" books.

Second, you can put it in your sig line and be active in the forums, and more people will see it.

Third, you can also post in a more specific forum, such as or both, Childrens & Young Adult. I think they would both possibly get you some responses.

Yes, you can post requests like that in the book bazaar.  Some people ask for a deal better than 1-1 as well.

Another way that often works to find members that have particular books is to search the BOB traders -  go to "Community", go to "Box of Books", search titles for "Sweet Valley High". - this will show you a number of BOB members that have multiple books matching the search term.  Click on each member and do another search to find out exactly which ones.
