I have 199 books on my wishlist, but when I try to add the 200th one I get the message that my WL is full, do I want to up it to 300 by becoming a Gold Key member.  I don't have any WL books on hold, I really only have 199 on the list.  Has this happened to anyone before?

When I look at your profile, it says you have 200 books on your Wish List.  I'm not familiar with any reasons why there might be a discrepency.

do you have your wish list sorted by author?  i lose 4 wishes from the display if i sort by author.  switch to sort by title & it will come back

Oh, good catch, Ronda! yes

If you have books which are missing an author (where the author field is blank), it will not show those when sorting by author.

One of the books on your list, Dorchester Terrace, is missing the author, so that's the problem.  I'll submit an edit so that gets fixed. There's already a data edit pending, so hopefully it will be fixed soon.

That was it, I usually keep it on 'estimate' but had just resorted it by author.  Thanks!
