Wish Lists and Gift Registries

Want to keep track of your TBR list?  Want to let your friends and family know what books you're keeping an eye on for the holidays?  Or maybe make a birthday list to send to your friends and family?  Create a registry for a special event or occasion? Whenever you see a great book on our website, you can add it to a Wish List to remind yourself of what to read next or email your list to friends and family so they know the perfect gift to give you.

*First, you must 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.
