You know how your  Reminder List shows the # of copies available?  Well, wouldn't it be really nice to have that same feature on both your Bookshelf and on your To Be Read lists? 

On your Bookshelf it would be very helpful as far as knowing how quickly you could expect a book to move, or  how to advertise it in Book Bazaar or if you have the only copy available.  And on your To Be Read list it would help you prioritize your reading order.  If there are 300 copies of one book and only 3 copies of another, you can decide which to read 1st!

Anyway, I've put this suggestion in to PBS, and I'm asking that if you think this is a good suggestion that you, also, write it in to PBS.


Thank you!

I know that there has been some talk of this, and I think I may R&R discussing this with the new wishlist changes.  I agree that it would be great!

What new wishlist changes are coming up? PS: I am also a fan of adding the # of copies available to the Bookshelf and TBR lists.

On Swap A DVD it is like that. You can see how many copies are listed of the movies on your shelf. I really like it. I hope R&R put it on here like that too!

There are a couple threads ongoing in the CMT and PBS ? boards about the new WL changes.  No word on when they are taking affect yet. They are still tinkering with it.  It would be nice for it to show how many are in the system when you post a book or even just search by title.  Like it show how many are on the WL line when you ask for WL books only.  I add books to my RL sometimes to see. I have a couple posted that I haven't read yet because there were a lot in the system already. But they are also books that I won't be upset if I have to send out before they're read on the chance they get ordered off my shelf.

Thank you to all that agree this would be a good suggestion!  Will it be seen from here by the people that make the changes?  Or will some of you write the suggestion in to them?
