Help me become the Amazon wish list fairy of my dreams!

So I occasionally like to send gifts to random people. For example, to celebrate our 15th anniversary, my husband and I found registries of couples with our same first names and send them wedding gifts. There are several authors I'd really like to support with book purchases, so I'd love to combine these impulses and find out who is wishing for these books and make sure they show up in their mailbox in a couple days. Is there any kind of internet trickery that would allow me to see on which public wish lists a certain item appears?

I can't answer your exact question, but thought you might appreciate the subreddit r/Random_Acts_of_Amazon.

Call some libraries to see if they would like a copy of a given boook. Not quite the same, but I do love libraries.

Books to prisoners programs likely have wish lists. I know LGBT books to prisoners does.

sites like GoodReads, LibraryThing, Shelfari, Bookstr, would certainly be happy to have free copies to give away.
