I think so - that way we can see what everyone got!

I believe we settled on a limit of 25 dollars. Or was it 20? Either way nothing over 25. :)

Perhaps those who are participating and who have asked for books might post a mini-wish-list on their profiles?

But if you don't know who matches which screen name, you won't know which profile to look at that!

I was thinking that! There won't be a problem with me, though! LOL.

How would you enter it on your profile anyway? There doesn't seem to be anywhere to put a list like that.

There's not a place per se, but people could always list it under "Interests"--assuming, as others have said, that their identity can be guessed.
