I got an e-mail from Half.com saying most of the items on my wishlist were available all at $7.99, including some very odd and unusual items. I went to the site but it wouldn't let me put any in my cart, later they were no longer listed. Has anyone else ever had this experience? What does it mean? I thought maybe if it wouldn't allow me to put it in my cart maybe someone else had it in theirs but I find it hard to believe that some of the very odd silent titles like *90-degrees North* would be snatched up that quickly. Maybe people will buy anything at $7.99.

Ideas anyone?

it usually means someone got there first (or had "preordered" the item)

Yeah, every time I get a wish list e-mail, the item is always gone when I try to buy.
