My best is 1 of 138 and I've been there since January - LOL.  The book should be out the end of September.  Pat

My best is #1 of 122.  I am #1 for a book that doesn't come out until next year sometime so I expect that WL will grow.

For another book, I'm #3 of 203.  Another one not published yet.

You all are putting my wishlisting skills to shame!  My best is only 2 of 292. But it doesn't come out until December and is a highly popular author, so I expect the wishlist to grow before then significantly.    And I wouldn't even have that if a friend hadn't tipped me off that the ISBN for this book was finally available.  She's got the #1 slot - obviously :-)

hey, i'm doing pretty good!  for some releases between now and the end of the year, i've got:

  • 1 of 156 for a book that releases on tuesday (and i already saw at the bookstore)
  • 1 of 121 for a book due 10/6
  • 1 of 227 for one 9/29
  • 1 of 21 for a sci-fi novel 10/27 (which will probably take at least a month - and i may get bored of waiting)
  • 1 of 54 for one 12/29
  • plus a couple where i've been waiting a while but i'm finally #1 on available books.

so far nothing where i'm #1 for next year, though i've got plenty on my WL for then already.  i just wasn't as fast.

Wow I'm impressed. My best is #1 of 44 for a book that comes out in March 2010. 

I've worked down to #1 of 5 for one book (where it seemed like a lot of books were being posted but now that I'm #1 - nothing) I'm #1 of 1 and #1 of 6 for the hardcopy version of a couple of books that I've also wishlisted the paperback versions where I'm like #42 of 50. If a hardcopy is ever posted (ha!) I'll be ready.

ya'll have me beat.....I think my best is #2 of 342. book not due til Feb. However, I WAS #1 for it according to my note....I wonder how I got bumped to #2? Same thing happened to another book by the same author. My note says 1 but now I am #2. (I put sticky notes on all my WL books when I wl them so I will know what # I was at the time of wl-ing it.)

I'm #1 for a book that has 485 on the WL and it's out so I'm thinking anytime now it'll be offered:)

Sigh...everything I am #1 for are books that I have been at #1 for months or years.  But I am #10 of 385 and 13 of 361 for 2 different versions of An Echo in the Bone, which I guess is exciting.  I'm #13 and #30 for the next two Roby Carr VR series books, but the WLs for those aren't too long, not yet anyway- I think that not many people probably know they are in the system.

i believe this happens if someone ahead of you is on vacation hold, then comes off of it.  they were ahead of you the whole time, but it only 'counts' them when they aren't on hold.  (though i don't know how auto-request plays into this - maybe it will count them if they're on hold but have that book on AR since in that case they would get it first.)

My #1 of 122 came up today also!  I'm so excited.  I supposedly had this book on its way to me in July.  It went lost though about 3 weeks ago and I've been sitting at #1 since then waiting and waiting impatiently.  Hopefully this time I get it!

Yeah!  I finally got my #1 of 122.  Last time it was posted to me, it never was sent so I had to wait out the lost in the mail time.

Now I'm still #1 of 95 for another book.  Been sitting there for like 3 weeks too.

I was #1 for the new Julia London book for almost a week.  I just checked the morning and I see I am now #2!  *I shrug my shoulders and shake my head*

I am 1 of 1 on 8 books.  I am 1557 of 1558 on a book I finally bought yesterday.  Friday I received a book that I was 1 of 5 for over a year!  And also a book I was 59 out of 170. 

Sometimes I think these numbers don't mean a thing!  When the Book Fairy says, "She gets the next one", then I get it!
