I don't think it's doing much good..I just try to go through and bump up threads that I think had a lot of activity/information...and this one too just in case!

if someone is unaware of the rules and then stops when told then that's ok.  but to continure to do it is just plain rude.

I was one of those folks who was going to follow the 'advice' of someone who should know and post about a deal here since I do have lots of romances.  So I am very glad I saw this here.

I frequent the Large Print forum but it's not nearly this busy *sigh* so I don't mind the deals that occaisionally show up there.  But I can see how it would be annoying.  I will be going back to the thread where I saw the 'advice' (in questions of all places, too) and post the rules.  I wonder what the other genre threads think about it.

BTW, if you have any of those Larger Print romances on your shelf it is okay to post about that in the LP forum.  Since it's not really genre but book version.  That was why we asked for the LP forum, so we had a place for those who really have LP (and audio) to let us know!

Thanks, K

Hi K! welcome! :-) I love knowing about deals but not when they bump other threads off and cover the whole first page LOL! I check out the deals in signatures and when people post in a thread like the suzanne brockmann that 's already started and say they have some and are doing a deal,e tc. I know the chicklit thread doesn't mind either. everyone loves deals though!

I've started getting large print too when i've had a choice..geez..only a young '40' but I've noticed the print getting pretty darned small and combined with poor lighting it's a nightmare!

The problem is one person posts a deal and then there are 10 people at once bumping the threads to stay on the 1st page.  Then you can't see the threads where people are actually talking about that genre.  That's why I keep it in my siggy.  And just that in my siggy.  I find the pictures a little distracting sometimes.

Bump (P.S. Has anyone tried contacting R & R  and asking for a red sticky note at the top of the page?)

I have a suggestion - instead of just bumping this thread, how about we start a new thread that says PLEASE DON'T POST DEALS IN THIS FORUM as the header?  Because the deal-posters probably never even bother to look at this thread. :-\

That works for me!  I found this languishing down on page 2 anyway and I never read past the first page on a forum unless I'm looking for a swap or game I'm in.

Sorry ladies.   All my books are romance and I thought I would go right to the people who read them.  Did not mean to upset any one.   

I came home tonight with almost 40 books tonight from my Sisters and already have hits on 5 from W/L.  and listed some over on half.com to make some postage money.
