How do wishlists work?
Once you've set up a wishlist of books you'd like to get hold of, you will get email notifications of new copies as they are listed. The emails are sent out at about 7am the day after the book has been listed. Note that you will NOT be notified of any copies that were already listed on the site at the time you added the book to your wishlist and this includes copies listed but "on holiday". Also, if there are several different editions of a book, it's a good idea to add all the editions to your list (unless you're only looking for one particular edition) so you'll be notified whenever any of them are listed.
Can I do a search to find which swappers are looking for a particular book?
Although there's no way of doing this on the site, you can use Google, although the results may be at least a week or two out of date:
In the Google search bar, type in the title of your book (making sure you spell it properly!), then put a space then type "site:http://www.readitswapit.co.uk/UserWishlist.aspx" (without the quote marks) and click search. You should then get a list of members with that book on their wishlists. However you'll need to come back to the site and check those members' profiles again on here to make sure they're still looking for the book.
Why have I been turned down for a swap when I have one of their wishlist books on my swaplist?
Members use wishlists in all sorts of different ways and are not compelled to swap with you just because you have one of their wishlist books. They may want a copy in better condition than yours, or don't want to swap it for the book you're requesting, or just aren't bothered about getting a copy now. Or they may even have already got hold of the book and have forgotten to update their wishlist. For all these reasons it's not usually a good idea to go to great lengths to get hold of a particular book in the hope of tempting someone to swap with you!
Does my wishlist automatically update if I swap for one of the books?
No, your list doesn't update automatically and you should go through at least every now and then to remove books you no longer need/want.
