I would LOVE to know what number I am for wished listed books. Like there are 6 people on a wish listed book that I really want. It would help me decide if I should track it at one of the libraries or if I should be patient and wait. How come PBS doesn't tell us? It would be helpful to know for Bookshelf books too...

Courtney,

Your wish has come true!  Just go to your wishlist and hover over the exclamation point with your mouse.

There is no way for sure to tell what number you are in the FIFO. Some people go through a rigamarole of adding it to their reminder lists and then estimating and watching. I dont have the attention span for that.
