My Wish List is at 294 books.  I have paid my gold key membership fee for this year.  Why can't I post more WL to make it 300?  Anyone else having trouble with this?

Pam,

I see 300 books on your WL.  Try sorting it by title and see if they all show up.

Pamela , I see 300 on your list as well.

Is 300 the limit?   just wondering because I dont have the key membership.

Silly Me!  I have it sorted by author or some such.  When I sort by title, then 300 is the magic number.  God forbid I don't get the max Wish List!!!!!  Thanks for the help.

Can anyone explain why how you sort it changes the number of books on your wish list?

Some books, like a dictionary or atlas, will show up under title but not show up under author.

I have several books that do not have the author listed.   So when I sort by author it says I have 297, but when I sort by estimate, it says I have 300.

That makes sense.  Peeking at my own wishlist, I see this book listing doesn't have an author shown.  Therefore, if I resorted by author it would not appear.

If you want to edit a listing to add an author, go to the book's info page, then click "more options" --> "edit book data."  If there is no author listing on your book (check the title page too), you can often use the publisher's name, and list it as something like "Editors of National Geographic."

I think some anthologies have the same issue.

Yes, for anthologies, we list the editor in the author line.  The authors of the individual stories/essays/poems can go in the description box.  The author line gets too crowded if we try to cram in all those authors.
