This is hypothetical for the moment at least until I find out if my daughter is willing to part with 2 of her books! LOL   Anyway, these books are relatively hard to find and I know if I post them that the first person in the WL line will get them instead of the person I WANT to have them....so, do you get them to gift you credits first, or send the books hoping it will all be ok, or what?  I have faith in my other fellow book addicts, but I have beenn pooped on a few times too....so, what would you do?

Sandy, you can post books to a specific member's wishlist, you have to go to their wishlist and click on "post this book" from there rather than from the post books screen.  First make sure that the ISBN number of the book on their list is the same as yours or else the book will go to someone else.

The person must have the books on auto wish if their account is on hold and they must have enough credits to auto purchase them. In other words, all things must line up when you post to someone's WL




And then STILL go to your account page, and click the PM to make SURE the book is going to the right person. Cancel it if not, and try it again, but do be sure to write an apology to the person that didn't get the book.

Good luck :)
