Person in Europe mooch Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Hi, angels!

I really REALLY want to read Harry Potter 4, but it's in Italy and the person who has it says it costs too much to send to South Korea.

He'll probably send it to someone in Europe. If you successfully mooch it from Gianmarco, and then send it to me in South Korea, I will give you 9 points: 3 for the book, 3 for sending it, and 3 for your trouble.

Here is the member who has the book: bio:gianma90

Any takers?

(1 month ago)I've checked Gianma90's inventory, and the Harry Potter book is no longer listed. Sorry. If you find another copy that someone would be willing to send to France, I'll send it to you.

Free for All - Part 3

Updated 2014-04-29 I'm trying to update our list but BookMooch is incredibly slow. Will try again later.

Time for a new thread! I've copied the general info below.

Someone asked off-thread if it was okay to request a 2-mooch minimum for international shipments and I think, considering the postage costs, that's perfectly fine. The only complication I can think of is that this probably means offering two wishlisted books. Your thoughts?

(3 months ago)Thanks for taking the time for explaining all of that. I really appreciate it. I lost track about 3 years ago about any new alternatives that may have happened after sea mail (obviously nothing good) due to an illness and heard that the price went way up. I'll try to meet some diplomats and send via diplomatic parcels:) I don't live far from Kennedy Airport and can maybe hang around flights to _____ and ask someone to take it. I'd probably get arrested though for passing books to save postage. (got that NSA?)
Denise
(3 months ago)Hi Melanie, Sorry not to reply earlier, but I have been rather out of the loop lately. I am indeed interested, so please let me know and I will mooch it off you. Thanks a lot! Mónica
Mosca
(3 months ago)Denise, I have never used an M bag, but I understand that if there is a lot of weight involved (10 lbs. or more?) it can be the cheapest way to send books overseas. Unfortunately, since the elimination of surface rate mail (sea mail) for going overseas by the U.S. Postal Service in 2007 the price went way up, but actually until this last rate increase earlier this year the price per book/point wasn't too much more than domestic....It had gone up every year since 2007, but I thought was still reasonable, in fact to Canada from the U.S. it was cheaper per point than domestic! But after years of going up at the most $1 every year, it now has gone up about 50% compared to last year :( . Tho Canada is still a lot cheaper... The only good thing that happened is that you can now pay for postage online (credit card or PayPal) for First Class International Package rate, and you even get a discount for doing that, so you don't have to go the the Post Office anymore and you get the online discount, but that's the only positive that I've seen.... Maybe restrict your books to only slim/light ones, or only Canada.... Wish I had better things to say...
Melanie C.
(3 months, 2 days ago)Does anyone know anything about cheaper shipping from the U.S. to Europe/Asia/Africa in something called an M bag or J bag? or some kind of bag:) I really miss sending international but there is simply no economical way to send books anymore, as I'm sure you all know. Anyone know of "creative" ways to send books overseas? Isn't there a black market on this - something.
Denise
(3 months, 8 days ago)I can tag Mosca with an alternate version of The Yiddish Policemen's Union -- I will email with details to see if you are interested in a paperback version!
Melanie C.
(3 months, 18 days ago)I looked through all the wishlists a couple weeks ago and it seemed someone was looking for Wallace Shawn's AUNT DAN AND LEMON. (sorry I can't look through all of them again or search each of them again) Its a nice copy of 1985 edition with the cover of pics of those 2 stars who played them in London and later NY. Their names are at the tips of my fingers but won't come out. Let me know if u want it.
Denise
(3 months, 24 days ago)Jacquie, you made my point. Email to your moochee the date the book is received. For Example: book has postmark shipp date of 01April2014, books received 15May2014. This tiny bit of info is gold to the shipper, and to other international moochers. I do use tracking numbers and first class mail, but it is no good until after delivery is made and the postal clerk logs in the information. Thanks for the input!
drummergirl
(3 months, 24 days ago)I can tag Gretchen Ann for HOMICIDE IN HARDCOVER by Kate Carlisle. I am sending an e-mail and also reserving for you for 7 days (if I remember how to reserve I think I do:) Denise
Denise
(3 months, 27 days ago)Hi Denise, as far as I know there are no real "rules", it is a "free-for-all" which means that anyone can send to anyone (can be international or domestic), just trying to encourage more international mooching and fulfilling people's wishlists and having fun!
Melanie C.
(3 months, 27 days ago)I have not been able to read earlier than last month's messages, as I click for them it takes "forever" and then my browser says its taking too long. I don't know the rules. Do I now send to Melanie or the first person I come across with a wishlist book I have and can send to them? I've checked a few wishlists but its taking "forever", but I'll get through them in the next few days I believe:) Thanks! Denise
Denise
(3 months, 27 days ago)Well, Denise, I never got an email that you'd mooched the book, but I did get the email that you'd posted to the forum, so I went to my account and saw you'd requested the book and accepted!
Melanie C.
(3 months, 27 days ago)Thank you Melanie both for the welcome and tagging me. I'd completely forgotten about my question here and hope the email will work from the forum. I will now check wishlists and see who I can tag. Denise
Denise
(3 months, 28 days ago)Tagging Denise with a copy of Farewell, Miss Zukas! I will email also to see if you still want.
Melanie C.
(4 months, 1 days ago)drummergirl, Once we hand our parcels over to the postal service - wherever in the world it is - things are out of our hands. I send all my international packages by economy rate post, which should in theory be surface mail, yet happily most seem to be sent by airmail. Many of the packages I receive from overseas have a French customs scanning label on them. I've no idea how long some packages might remain in customs, sometimes I receive half a dozen on the same day, from all over the world. Packages could be held up in transit in the original country, leaving the original country, or in transit in the destination country. It's all in the hands of the postal authorities, plus customs.
jacquie
(4 months, 2 days ago)To international receivers, please post to your moochee the DATE you received the book. This will help determine if the USPS tracking system is working and also whether to continue sending to your country. For example, Israel is by far taking longer than normal for delivery from the USA: this information tells me to advise new moochers from Israel to be aware of a possible 2-3 week delay for delivery. Once our global postal system has the book, we have NO control on customs houses, delivery times, delivery to correct address. Same can be said traveling to the USA. Thanks for use the soap box.

(5 months, 18 days ago)that's a cool idea. right now I do not have the points to actively participate, but I probably will eventually, *mumbles to self* now how do I remember to join when I do....
Ellelarondelle
(7 months, 25 days ago)Hi Ellelarondelle, this forum was a lot more active awhile back as you can see from this link (not sure if I can make it a link): International Wishlist Tag Game It's still going, technically :) . The idea is we look at the wishlists of all those on the forum and see if we have anything that can fulfill any of them, for example you may have a book on your "To Be Read" pile that is on another's wish list, or think you can get your hands on a copy, then you offer it to them ("tag") and then others may do the same for you. It doesn't necessarily have to be an international mooch either, just on someone's wish list. Just trying to get more books in circulation, more wishlists fulfilled...
Melanie C.

can someone mooch a book for me from Canada?

this is a book I'm looking for:

The Maltese Falcon

Dashiell Hammett : The Maltese Falcon (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard)

the book is in Canada and understandably, the owner doesn't do international mooches.

Name: yeschef33 (Canada)
Userid: yeschef33

Can someone get the book for me? I'll give points, of course.
thanks.
Michal

(1 year ago)Melanie C. I would love to get N and M from you! Thanks!
Arianne
(1 year ago)Please---- there's a real shortage of good stitching books on this site (and I don't mean things like "Home and Garden: Christmas in Stitches") and clearly a real thirst for those books. When I first joined, my first few books that I listed were needlework books and they were all snatched up in a matter of hours. My inventory has been picked clean of needlework books. Please, if you see an interesting stitching/needlework/beading book at a yard sale or used book store, can you get it and post it? I guarantee it won't be sitting on your list long. Especially you readers in Australia/new Zealand and South Africa. You probably don't realize this but you have a number of wonderful Stitchers who publish beautiful books. They are really hard to get here in America.

(1 year ago)@Jacquie The only way I can think of is exporting each individual wishlist and then amalgamate them in an Excel sheet. At least, that way you can quickly search for a book or author.

(2 years ago)Hi Kathy! You just type (or copy and paste) the actual address of the wishlist page for that person into your comment, for example mine is (and I'm putting in descriptions of things so it won't actually print the heart and the name right now): http colon slash slash bookmooch.com/m/wishlist/mc0111 -- so if you write the actual address of the page itself into your comment it will show up as a link with the heart and the name. Cute, huh :) ? The Inventory page has a little book and the name when you type in the actual page address. Hope this is clear, if not just let me know.
Melanie C.
(2 years ago)Sorry Melanie, I know I am being thick.............. but I still don't know how I can make the heart and the name appear on these comments when I want to tag someone.
Kathy Arkwright
(2 years ago)Hi Kathy! It's the actual address of the wishlist page for that person. The link just shows up like that with the heart and the name. The Inventory page has a different little icon, can't remember it right now, if I can I'll come back. Kathy Arkwright that's your inventory page!

(2 years ago)Hi ItsTanya!!!! Yes please, I would love the magazine!! I am a grown-up Barbie fan!!! Thank you.
Erika
(2 years ago)Hello Clare! You can tag someone a couple of different ways....One is you can post a book, and immediately "reserve" it for someone (by clicking on reserve link on the right from the last page you get at the end of the posting process). You click on "reserve", and it will ask you the BMID (or the "userid", same thing) of the person you want to reserve it for. Their userid is on their "bio" page. Then at the very bottom of the "reserve" page it says "send an email recommendation" and you click on that -- this notifies them of the reservation. I have then mentioned it on this thread also, that it is reserved for them. The other way, and I've been doing this recently, is just to mention it in this thread and ask them to let you know if they still want the book (they may have changed their mind). I also (since maybe they aren't checking this thread) have gone to the book details page, and on the right there's a link that says "recommend". You click on that, enter their BMID (userid) where it asks, and this sends them an email that you have recommended the book to them, and I also add that it's part of this thread and ask them to let me know if they still want, and I will reserve it for them. Sometimes if it's a related edition to what they have on their wishlist I will just email them directly from the link on their bio page and ask if they are interested in the related edition. Hopefully I haven't made this too complicated!! Any questions, just please ask!!
Melanie C.
(2 years ago)I can't find any of your wishlist books to offer but would like to be involved if I can. Would anyone be interested in Blessed is the fruit by Robert Antoni: Robert Antoni : Blessed is the Fruit (Faber Caribbean) Review: Acclaimed Trinidadian writer Robert Antoni's second novel tells the life stories of two West Indian women: Lilla, the white mistress of a dilapidated colonial mansion, and Vel, the longtime black servant who lives with her. The two women have always kept an emotional distance by the accidents of their birth, but when Vel finds herself pregnant, Lilla puts her to bed in her own bedroom. Writing lyrically and convincingly in the voices of the two women themselves, Antoni lets them tell their life stories--a heady mixture of sex, religion, myth, and the musicality of their own inner languages. Antoni's first novel, Divina Trace won the Commonwealth Writers Prize.

Big Thank You!

Good Morning:

Someone from this forum sent me two books from my wishlist. I could not figure out from the info who performed this random act of kindness. So, I will thank you all! They both arrived on my birthday--no joke!! Thanks, bamagirl1111

Free for All

In an attempt to get unstuck, let’s do a Free for All. Check out the wishlists of the moochers who have subscribed to this forum -- maybe we can grant some wishes while trying to maintain the international aspect :0

With any luck, this will generate a flurry of activity that will get noticed by more moochers who will then rush to join our group. *sending out positive vibes while keeping fingers crossed*

New to the tag game? Post a message here when you join and I can add the link to your wishlist. Also, because messages randomly disappear, it's a good idea to sign up to receive forum messages by email and to include your BMID in your message.

Clare
(2 years ago)What is BMID?
Karlene
(2 years ago)@ ItsTanya, don't think you saw my comment about the Little Book of Zen, so am sending an email directly, should have done that also!
Melanie C.
(2 years ago)@ Gerri, Received the book and the extra cd today, thanks so much! Actually though it was Robin who mentioned that she likes to listen to David Sedaris so I will offer to send David Sedaris : David Sedaris Live at Carnegie Hall to her. I appreciate the thought though!
Kerry
(2 years ago)Not to worry, I'll sort something out :)
Mosca
(2 years ago)Ah no, sorry. Is the US too far to send?
Robin
(2 years ago)Do you still have an address in Germany?
Mosca
(2 years ago)Sure! I'm not usually picky about HB vs. PB. Thanks!

(2 years ago)I'm not having much luck searching through these lists, so I thought I'd offer a couple of books whose authors pop up fairly frequently - but not the titles I have. Maybe mine are early titles, I don't know. If anyone would like: Undead and Unreturnable by Maryjanice Davidson or Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris, just give me a shout. Meanwhile I'll keep searching :)

(2 years ago)Thanks to skiving off to drop in at an Anglophone section booksale this afternoon, I've managed to tag Mosca with 'Say it with poison' and list several other wishlisted books. How much will it take before people say that BM is no longer stalled?
jacquie
(2 years ago)Thanks Kerry. I did that but unfortunately/fortunately Peta already has this book!! Well, I tried!
Kathy Arkwright
(2 years ago)Kathy, all you need to do is post the book and reserve it for Peta (enter her BM id (peta158) in the reserve for field. I generally use the email recommendation feature in case they do not check this forum regularly.
Kerry

Jenn aka birdbrain

birdbrain
(2 years ago)What a brilliant idea!! I would do the same but I have such a huge TBR list I wouldn't have time to list them all...........but I will check out other people's wishlists and see if I can help.
Kathy Arkwright
(2 years ago)How about if I give you all access to my TBR piles (http://www.librarything.com/profile/cougargirl1967) and then you could give me an idea what to put on top of my pile! I have a lot less time online since I moved so I'll let you all browse for yourself. Although I have to warn you, I have books across 2 states, so some will get read quicker. :-) Sonja "Born to Sing, Forced to Work"
Sonja
(2 years ago)To the contrary I have a pile of books that I have not listed because with 270+ points I do not need more points BUT if I see someone on here looking for a book I will ask if they want to mooch it then post & reserve it for them. Everybody has their own way of Bookmooching. Happy Mooching to all Gerri 07
Gerri
(2 years ago)@Stephanie - I agree that "if I am willing to get rid of a book, I have already listed it"; yes, I have a permanent inventory of over 200 books.
However, knowing that a fellow BookMoocher is very very interested in one of the books on my TBR list may make me bump it to nearer the top of my reading list. And I'll dare to say even more so if that is someone with whom I've exchanged books in the past.
Whatever we do that might make books circulate more within a very sluggish BM is welcome, especially to those of us who have no choice but to send and receive internationally.

jacquie
(2 years ago)Well I will certainly do my best and go through all my books. Chance to get them dusted LOL ! Kathy
Kathy Arkwright
(2 years ago)It started out as a “tag” game where the person who gave a book would be next in line to get a book, but there were so few participants that we started a “free for all” where any group member can tag another. It works best with large wishlists; small and/or esoteric wishlists, less so. Having more people participate improves the odds that you will score one or more wishlist hits.

Over the past year, BookMooch activity has slowed down so this is a way to get things moving again. There are lots of people who aren’t adding new books because they have lots of points but can’t find anything to spend them on. When people join this game, the group members browse each other’s wishlists and when they have someone’s wishlisted book, they offer it up to that person, i.e. the book owner initiates the mooch. And, since that’s the intent of the group, no one feels like they are being pressured or being stalked. In a small way, it gets books back into the system.

Jenn aka birdbrain

birdbrain
(2 years ago)@duygu - I've put your name against the following on my TBR list: - Philippa Gregory : The White Queen: A Novel - Stieg Larsson : The Girl Who Played with Fire

Mosca
(2 years ago)@Mosca, the following are on my TBR list; I've noted to reserve them for you once I've read them, but there'll be a wait... but just to let you know that they will become available at sometime - Bruce Alexander : Murder in Grub Street (Sir John Fielding) - Lawrence Block : The Thief Who Couldn't Sleep (Evan Tanner Mystery) - Harlan Coben : Just One Look - Lionel Davidson : The Chelsea Murders - there is a moochable copy available - P.C. Doherty : An Ancient Evil (Canterbury Tales Mysteries 1) - Christopher Fowler : Full Dark House: A Peculiar Crimes Unit Mystery - I had to buy a copy to get this, and having read it put it into BM and sent it to isambardcat recently, you could see whether s/he'll reserve that copy for you when finished - John Harvey : Gone to Ground - P.D. James : An Unsuitable Job for a Woman - there are copies available to mooch though - Val McDermid : The Grave Tattoo - Val McDermid : Distant Echo - Val McDermid : Beneath the Bleeding - Val McDermid : Beneath the Bleeding - John Sandford : Rules of Prey - there is a moochable copy available Woops! Should I (a) confess to having (hoarding?) all these, or (b) confess that I'm thinking of going to a booksale next month? - Penelope Lively : Moon Tiger

Mosca
(2 years ago)@Mosca and Jenni Canuck: Thank you so much for offering, I am so, so, so, sorry I haven't responded as I've been away! Would it be very bad form for me to accept BOTH your offers now? *blush* Because I would love those books, if they're still available but I don't want to mess up the game (more than I already have :P) Thanks! Sophie
SLim
(2 years ago)Lovely surprise! I have mooched both, thank you

I'm going to check out some wishlists to see whether I can join this Free for All.

Robin
(2 years ago)No problem Robin, Would be grateful if you could let me know either way though. All the very best, Kathy
Kathy Arkwright
(2 years ago)Hi Kathy, I can't mooch it, I'm afraid. Right now I might not be in the States for longer than another 8 weeks, and I know you will want to send it surface mail which can take 12...I just might not be here to receive it. Can I get back to you in a couple of weeks when I know for sure if we'll be extended in DC? I'm so sorry, this came up really suddenly. Robin
Robin
International Wishlist Tag Game

There is a game going on in the Bookmooching Group on LibraryThing which I think is great, so I thought I´d try it here on BookMooch.

If you would like to participate, please check the wishlist of the member who posted last in this thread, and if you have something from their wishlist you are willing to send, you post here with "I tag xxx", list and reserve it on BM, they Mooch it from you and you send the book to her/him. So you are now last and hopefully someone will find something for you and so on. All mooches should be international.

If you'd like to participate, please make sure there is something on your wishlist and you have 3 points available for Mooching.

So I´ll start by offering a copy of Jon Krakauer : Into the Wild (good condition with some minor cover creases and the lower back cover corner is beginning to split and curl).

If anyone would like to participate then they should 'tag' me for the book, I will reserve it for them, they Mooch it from me. All mooches should be international.

I am then the last name on the list and someone finds a book from my WL and tags me with the title.

If no-one wants to play, then my copy of Into the Wild finds a good home and all ends there.

I've been playing this on LT and had great fun: you get something you like, you send something the person will like who gets it, and you even know the postage costs in advance (if it´s too far and too expensive, you just don´t tag the member). Hopefully it will be as popular on here as on LT and BookCrossing :)

Shamelessly copied from DubaiReader on LibraryThing who shamelessly copied it from Schwester at BookCrossing :)

(2 years ago)Thanks Gerri, but I prefer to listen to David Sedaris....he's much funnier that way. :-) Thanks though!
Robin
(2 years ago)Robin I have a paper copy, not an audio CD of When You are Engulfed in Flames by Michael Sedaris if you are interested.
Gerri
(2 years ago)It's reserved for you, all you need to do is go "mooch" it! :-)
Robin
(2 years ago)Hello Robin, Yes that would be lovely :) Thank you duygu
duygu basman
(2 years ago)Thanks again Gerri, let me know when it's there
Mosca
(2 years ago)I can tag Mosca with Secret Life of Bees
Gerri
(2 years ago)I can tag duygu basman with Beloved by Toni Morrison. Let me know if you still want it. Robin
Robin
(2 years ago)OK, it's there for you
Mosca
(2 years ago)That sounds good...thank you please post & reserve for me.
Gerri
(2 years ago)Gerri, I tag you with a decent PB copy of The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Please let me know and I'll reserve it.
Mosca
(2 years ago)Thank you...I have mooched it. Checking wish lists no luck yet..Will keep trying.
Gerri
(2 years ago)Gerri - I am posting Little Women for you, hopefully I can figure out how to reserve it for you :)
duygu basman
(2 years ago)Great ...I would love Butcher Boy. Yes I started the 1001 books & was shocked at how few I had read. I'll look at your wish list I'm hopeful I have a book for you.
Gerri
(2 years ago)How can we keep the list of participants in view?
Robin
(2 years ago)I have been tagged offlist by NinaBryna for 3 books J. I'll be looking at wishlists shortly.
Mosca
(2 years ago)Thank you Kerry. Gerri, I have Little Women but I hvae to see if it is a more simplified one for children or the original one. If it is for children, then I have Butcher Boy I can tag you with. Also, we have a lot of books in common , I guess you are following the 1001 list also :)
duygu basman
(2 years ago)I tagged Canuck_Jenni with Love is Hell
Gerri
(2 years ago)Hi Duygu, I can tag you with a copy of The Sparrow, posted and reserved for you. The next step would be for you to check the wishlists of the other members of this forum to see if you can fulfill someone elses wish. -Kerry-
Kerry
(2 years ago)How do I join the forum?
duygu basman
(2 years ago)Jenni, you should pick another player to tag instead of me. I'll keep an eye on the forum to see if I can jump in, but I do have an odd wishlist. Maybe when the game catches hold and there are more players I'll be able to slip back in.
Mary H
(2 years ago)I've checked MaryH's list but can't help either - I'd only heard of one of her WL books! Anyone else??
DubaiReader
(2 years ago)This sounds like a great way to connect. Although I don't currently have anything for Mary H but I'll keep my eye on other posts.
Sonja
(2 years ago)Sorry to be so slow in responding. I'm AFK pretty much until the end of the month working on a special project.

My intention in setting this up was to encourage international mooching. I think it's great that Mary H offered up a domestic mooch to LauraTS and I hope she finds someone international to tag soon.

Anyway, as long as I'm here, I'll tag LauraTS with Mary Ann Shaffer : The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and, since I've already received a tag and I really hope more people will join in, I'll pass my tag opportunity to MaryH.

So, next to be tagged is Mary H

Jenni Canuck
(2 years ago)OK, I've just noticed in large letters on the instructions that all Mooches should be international! So Laura TS still needs tagging - my apologies.
DubaiReader
(2 years ago)Jenni should have the last say on this, but I would have thought a local mooch counted as well.
DubaiReader
(2 years ago)OK, this doesn't count as a turn since LauraTS & I aren't international, but I was looking over your list & have a pristine copy of Dawn Dais : The Nonrunner's Marathon Guide for Women: Get Off Your Butt and On with Your Training if you're interested. I'll just have to keep watching the forum for my chance to play for real.
Mary H
(2 years ago)Great! I will list and reserve it for you.
LauraTS
(2 years ago)Any edition is fine by me, thanks Laura LauraTS next to be tagged.
DubaiReader
(2 years ago)DubaiReader, I have a hardback copy of The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit, if you don't care about specific edition.
LauraTS
(2 years ago)Awesome, thank you! Next to be tagged DubaiReader
birdbrain
(2 years ago)I' ll tag Birdbrain with Only You Can Save Mankind by Terry Pratchett. I'll list it now.
DubaiReader
(2 years ago)Hi Nina, The benefit is that you (hopefully) get a book from your wishlist. In addition to that, you may find other moochers with similar tastes whom you may be able to trade books with in the future.
Kerry
(2 years ago)I'm not sure I understand how this works, but I shall be happy to join. Can someone explain for the benefit of the (apparently) feeble minded (or bleary-eyed). thanks.
NinaBryna
(2 years ago)Thank you! I'll happily accept that (the edition does not matter to me, I just want to read it). So that means birdbrain is next to be tagged!
Kerry
(2 years ago)@ Kerry ::: I have this edition of Lawrence Hill : Book Of Negroes. Unless you specifically want the edition you have on your wishlist, I will tag you with this one.
birdbrain
(2 years ago)@Robin I think it might be better to wait until you have something ready to send. Hopefully, there will be many opportunities to tag and be tagged :-) Still waiting to be tagged: Kerry
Jenni Canuck
(2 years ago)Ok, so if I understood this correctly, I'm now supposed to look at Kerry's WISHlist, and see if there's anything on it I have? I actually might have Asimov's Mother's Day, but I haven't read it yet. I did *just* finish Blanche cleans up, but I loved it so much, I didn't want to give it up. So, maybe I shouldn't play?
Robin
(2 years ago)Thank you! Next to be tagged: Kerry
Jenni Canuck
(2 years ago)I guess I'm playing it wrong, but I don't really want Into the Wild. However, I have an extra copy of a book on your wishlist which I have now posted and reserved for you. Hopefully that will not mess up the game too much.

Wish List Book

NinaBryna I have a copy of Black Sheep by Georgette Heyer. It is a 1967 copy so shows some shelf wear on the spine & tanning of the pages but spine is firm with no loose or missing pages. I will post & reserve it for you. Please let me know if you do not want this copy.

(2 years ago)Hi Gerri, I think you missed something...the book has been reserved for me, rather than NinaBryna. I'm not interested, so feel free to fix it for her. Thanks. Robin

How do we make this work better?

We've been stalled for a while now. Anyone have any ideas?

(2 years ago)How about a Free for All.? Check it out here: Free for All

(2 years ago)My idea was to offer another book, and that clearly did not work. Not sure what else we can do.
