The site won't let me add a book to my wishlist when it states I only have 188 books loaded up there.  (And I counted to make sure.)  Temporary glitch or are other people having this problem too?  Suggestions?

Not having a problem with mine.  I had 198 books and added two more.

Maybe if you do a hard refresh (Control-F5) or clear your cookies?

Make sure that the reason isn't because the book is available. :0)

Hard refresh was new to me.  I did it, but no change. 

And nope...no copies available. (I dont' think the WL button would be there if the Order Button was there.)

You may want to try resorting your WL and see if your #s change.  Sometimes the count will go up and down.

Appreciate the suggestion...no change.


I guess I'll just give it a day and see if it corrects itself.

Sort by title instead of author, perhaps? I know I've had books "disappear" when I've sorted by author. They show up again when I sort by title.

I pull up your Wish List and see 200 books. As Jane mentions author is always the problem sorter, switching to title or date should show them all.

eta: Just on your first 50, I see 4 without authors. These will not show at all if you sort by author.

Thank you.  I'll have to go scrub the list.  No matter how I sort it, I still get 188.  Odd. 

Thanks for the input! :)

My wish list is also "off". Yesterday I had 196 books on my wishlist. Now there are about 186, yet I haven't had any autorequests activate or made other changes.

ETA: oops! In my case it was the "author" thing! I NEVER sort it by author, but I did last night. Re-sorted and my missing books are back.
