frown  I went to my reminder list yesterday and they were out of alphabetical order.  Okay, figured there was a glitch in the system, has happened before.

Now, I went to see how books of ones I am thinking of posting are there and none of them were. They are ones that were being wished for quite a bit in the last couple or three weeks.  So, went to search to see how many were in the system.

Put in authors names and it shows that are none in the system, plus some books that I have on my wish list and was in the position of 8 out of 15 type are not there.

What gives, is it my computer or is the system having problems?

I took myself off vacation yesterday or day before, could that be the reason that I am having the problem, it needs to update itself on my computer?

To put your reminder list back in alphabetical order, click the Resort button at the top of the list and select Title.

I'm not sure I understand the other issue.

Depending on the book, it could just be one that moves in and out of the system. Or like a couple of mine that were on my RL and now my WL, it could be a soon to be movie so people are wanting to read the books before the movie.

I'm not sure about your WL question. Are you sure you haven't requested them? If you just took your account off vacation hold, maybe you were at the top of the line and they're just now on your My Account page under the tab for books requested.

Use the re-sort button Janette.

I HAVE used the resort button, several times. left and came back to retry again.  Still it is all mixed up.

I had wondered if going off vacation could affect it, but I don't have that many on my wish list, 25 and several of them are just copies of the same book, one in paperback another in hardback, different ISBN numbers. 

I sent a question to TPTB and see if they can help me.  Since I am not having trouble with any other forum I am on, it seems to be related to here. 

I will just keep checking and hope it straightens out.

Your lists will resort back to default sorts if you have any program on your computer that clears your history, cache, cookies, etc.
