I just noticed that one of my TBR books is wishlisted & on auto request.  I have not officially posted the book, I'm waiting to get others in series before reading this one.  Should I remove it from my TBR list?  Thanks

No, why remove it? Most of my books in my TBR have the wishlist W too. Its cool to see what is wishlist and what is not.

There is no reason to remove it. Your TBR is the books you have to read. No one can see than list but you. The system just lets you know which ones you have to read are Wish Listed because some people will read those first and post them. I have a little over 200 WLed on my TRB right now.

Either I did something that I don't remember or the system gremlins got in there and changed the order of my TBR list, as its now sorted into all the WL books first.  I was surprised to see that I have at least 100 WL books in my TBR pile (I didn't go on to the rest of the pages to see how many of those were all WL).

Thanks, lol, I wasn't sure what to do.  I read fast, but not that fast.

I use that feature to determine what to read next depending on how many wishers there are.  If there are less than 3, I consider reading the book and posting it and then work my way up the list of wishlisted books.

I love that feature !  Thanks PBS !

The TBR pile is only for your use, no one else can see it. The "W" is just a way to let you know that someone else has this book on their wishlist. It does NOT mean you have to read it first if you don't want to. It could even be that by the time you do, it won't be wishlisted anymore. Or another book that isn't wishlisted now might be then. I rarely even look at that--I do re-post my books from there so that's usually when I noticed if they are W'd or not.
