What Is This Page For?

The Wishlist is a list of books that you want to mooch as soon as possible. Whenever someone adds a book that's on your Wishlist, you'll be notified by email. Wishlists are publicly visible. You should not add books to your wishlist that you will not mooch if they are ever available.

What Can I Do On This Page?

The top of the page lists the member's name(country) and the number of books in their wishlist.
