Dear Librarian – I put a book on my Wish List yesterday, and today I happened to be browsing the site and I saw that a copy was available! I grabbed it up. I am thrilled to get the book I wanted, but why wasn’t it offered to me? –Puzzled in Providence
You must have put one version (ISBN) of the book on your Wish List, and this was a different version - one that may have been available all along. To avoid this happening in future, we recommend the Wish Expander, which allows you to see ALL versions of a book known to the database when you click “+Wish” on any version of that book – you can choose which version(s) of the book you would like to wish for, or even order a copy if one is available. It’s one of our favorite features, and we think it will quickly become one of yours too! You can read all about using the Wish Expander in the Help Center.
The Last Word:
- As always, don‘t forget to start your Amazon shopping from the link at the top of the PBS site – when you do this, a small percentage of your purchase amount comes to us. Please note that if you are an e-book reader, it used to be that e-book purchases at Amazon did not count to support the PBS site, but now they do! So be sure that whenever you plan to purchase on Amazon, that you start from the Amazon link at the top of the PBS site. It’s an easy, free way to support the club!
