Creating Wish Lists
Creating a Wish List on our website is a handy way to keep track of books you want to read. You can also use the Wish List feature to let friends and family know what books would make great gifts for you by emailing them your Wish List(s). Or you can use it to create a registry for a special event or occasion. Whenever you see a book that interests you on our website, you can add it to a Wish List to remind yourself of what to read next, or you can email your list to friends and family so they know the perfect gift to give you.
To create a Wish List, you must first have an account with us.
--You can login to your account or create one here.
Once you are logged into your account, search or browse for a book and click on ‘Add to Wish List.’ A pop-up box will come up where you can create a Wish List, or add a new one if you have already created one.
Settings for your Wish Lists
To change the settings for a Wish List, click on My Account (on the far right on the menu bar at the top of the home page), then click on the ‘Wish List’ tab.
--Choose the Wish List you want and update the settings as needed.
--You must have at least one book on a list to update the settings.
--Settings show up under the ‘Create New Wish List’ section.
Title (required) - You can change the name of your wish list here.
Your Name (required) - defaults to your email, but you can change it if you like. This is what people will use to search for your Wish List on our website (if your list is not private).
Event or expiration date - You can make it for a specific date -- a birthday, wedding, or other special event or occasion -- or you can extend the date as long as you want.
You can also:
--Hide Expiration Date - uncheck if for a birthday, wedding, or other special event or occasion with a set date.
--Private - If you make it Private, your Wish List will not show up in a search on the website, but can still be shared via email.
--Add your delivery/shipping address - Anyone purchasing from your list will be able to send a title on your list to you.
--Don’t require shipping - Check only if all books will be picked up at the bookstore.
--Add notes if more details are needed.
--List of books added to Wish List shows up after Notes section.
--To Remove a book, just click on the box next to the book cover and click on 'Update Wish List.'
To mail your Wish List, click on the arrow next to ‘Email Your Wish List,’ then add the recipient(s)'s email address(es).
--You can personalize the text for the Subject and Message; default text is shown.
--Click the box for ‘I’m not a robot,’ then click on 'Email Wish List.'
If you want to remove a book, scroll up to where you see the book covers and do it there.
If you are creating a booklist for an event and have a list of ISBNs, you can save them to a document, one ISBN per line. Then you can copy them all and paste them into the Bulk Upload box to create a quick and easy Wish List.
Don’t forget to click on SAVE if you make any changes; they will not be saved automatically.
