I am a newbie to PBS and was wondering what the trends were.  Do most folks buy during the week or on the weekend or is it truly random. 

Is there anything more than offering a special on the Book Bazaar forum that I can do to get books moving off of my bookshelf?

Just Curious, Thanks,  Lita

My experience is that it's pretty random but if you have alot of popular authors then there are probably many, many copies in the system already.  Therefore, you're probably a ways down on the FIFO list.  I noticed that you've sent 9 books since you joined 9 days ago - that's a pretty good average!  You'll also want to keep on beefing up your shelf if you're doing deals - people tend to order more if they have more choices on a 2 or 3 for one.   Good Luck!

Hi Robin,

Thanks for the info.  I guess I should be happy with my 9 :  ).  My husband gave me some to post and I guess he is more in line with what  "the public" reads :  ).  More than 1/2 of the 9 were his books.  He is now getting antsy waiting for the credits to come in.  He asks me daily.... "Do we have any credits yet?"

Hi, Lita.  Welcome to PBS!

The Help Center has advice on this here:

This was in the most recent Newsletter, which went out last week (just after you joined).

Looks from your sig like you're wheelin-and-dealin already.  Good luck!
