Lissi and Jamie,

I was offlist Sunday so am just seeing your note. Yes, it is definitely helpful 
to post Wish List and Books being Scanned here. As long as the poster doesn't 
make the mistake of thinking that it will get onto either list without also 
being sent to one of these two addresses posting here can be helpful:

Dear Booksharian Friends,

Jamie, I second your opinion that this list is a perfect place to post book 
wishes. Of course they belong on the wish list, but posting wishes here as well 
alerts volunteers who might share a wisher's interests and result in a wish 
being fulfilled sooner. It's like putting up a sign if you've lost a pet, 
something that hasn't happened to me. The more places you put up your signs, 
the better your chances of the right person seeing one of them and reuniting 
you with your lost best friend.

Seeing what books are requested helps give me a sense of what some Booksharians 
want to read and adds to my sense of community with fellow subscribers and book 

Always with love,

But isn't it also timely and appropriate to post a book request on this list? 
Volunteers who scan are reading this list every day. The wishlist is so long 
that not everyone even looks at the wishlist.
