Subject: book received from your wish list

I was wondering...I received a book on my wish list and marked it received, etc.  Why don't the other versions that were part of my wish get automatically  deleted?  Does PBS assume we may want other versions?  I don't always go into my wish list and may not delete these other versions on a timely fashion.

Hmmmm.... Maybe I need to go back and look at my wishlist.  Usually when I receive a wishlist book, a box pops up asking if I want to remove the other versions from my wishlist.  I wonder now if it hasn't done that on all of them.  Better check.

When I've marked it received, it's always asked me if I wanted to delete the others.  They were put on hold when I officially requested the WL copy.  I say yes, and they are removed.  The only thing I can think of is...maybe some of the versions aren't correctly linked, so they don't know to delete them.  But normally, it should delete them.

What Kellie said -- sometimes the versions aren't linked up properly, so they don't get deleted.

In 4 yrs here I've only been asked about the other versions a couple of times. So I don't rely on it personally.

I guess I'll go into the wish list when I get a book from there.  Thanks for your replies.

For whatever reason, my experience is that sometimes the other versions are automatically deleted and sometimes (less often) they are not.
