I saw a cry for help the other week. Someone was looking for a book to complete a series – “all I am missing to have a full set” – they had collected since childhood.
They hadn’t been able to source it having chased down eBay for “18 months”.
I did a quick search and found the book available as both new and second-hand via another website. The person seeking to complete their collection confirmed the issue wasn’t the lack of finding the book, but the prohibitive cost.
If you need help, be honest about what you’re really looking for or it might come back to bite you.
