Hi!  I just had a book be declared lost and was put back on my WL. So now I have 201 on the WL. Should I delete something or let it stand?  I don't want to lose my place on anything there.

I wonder if the "powers that be" are allowing you to have 201 because a book was lost, which is not your fault.

I have heard of this happening a time or two before.   Just leave it - you won't miss any books and it won't be long until one of your wish list books become avaialable and problem solved!

Don't worry about it.  The system does not penalize you for lost books.  So they let you have a bonus book on your wishlist when this happens.  You just won't be able to add any more books to your list until you receive or delete 2 books instead of 1.

Thanks. I just got a notice about a WL book being posted, so I am back to 200.

You might be able to clear up some WL spaces if you have any WL that only have the 5 digit PBS code.  The likelyhood of any of those being posted w/that # again is slim to none. I put a bunch of those on my WL when I first joined until someone explained this to me. That code is for that copy only and if it is reposted it will get a new 5 digit code.
