Am I the only person who didn't get one today? 

I checked my spam and I checked my settings but none of that has changed.  I always wake up to that list in my inbox and even though it's really bad for my WL and RL (not to mention my public library list!), I enjoy perusing it as I drink my tea.


Anyone else?

What is a daily wish list?  I didn't even know there was such a thing.  I obviously still have a lot to learn.

You can find your email under Club Communications. I believe it's on the toolbar when you're on your main account page. Maybe check your blocked senders list and see if PBS accidentally ended up on it? Otherwise I'm not sure what happened with that one. Maybe a system glitch or something.

Gavia, the Daily Digest and Daily Wish List can be found under Settings. You can choose which genres they send you emails about, and then every day you get an email with recently posted books (Daily Digest) or recently wish listed books (Daily WL).

Mine wasn't here either, but just came in at 8:30 Pacific time. I didn't realize what a creature of habit I am until I didn't have my Daily Wish List to wake up with.LOL

I think it must have been all emails from PBS. I realized I had a book request on my account (but didn't get an email for it, I just happened to notice it because I was signed in) and it was requested at 3am. I accepted and printed the wrapper and then 2 minutes after I print the wrapper, I get the email telling me I have a request! lol

I'll tell you a secret ... the link in the email you get is exactly the same every day. If you bookmark it once, you can visit it again any time, even if that day's email didn't arrive.

I usually get mine sometime in the night.  It is 9 AM here and mine just showed up.

Ok - so I'll repeat my question: What's a Daily Wish List?  (Whatever it is, I've *never gotten it!).

Gavia, you have to sign up to receive it.  Check on your "Settings" under the "My Account" tab in your PBS menu bar.

I just checked my inbox and there it was.  All is right with my world! LOL!

All it is is a list of books in each genre that were wishlisted the day before. There is also a daily digest that shows all books posted.

LeeAnne, I have mine bookmarked....I do get those daily emails but only actually look at the Daily WL and Digest maybe 2-3x/month so I normally just delete them unread every day, and use the bookmark when I want to go there. (I tried unsubbing, just to cut down on the emails, but then my bookmark link quit working too, so I had to resubscribe.)

Hmmm... that's strange, because in my settings there's only one thing I've checked that I don't  want, and that's order follow-up.

Gavia--

The Daily Wish List and Daily Digest are in a different place the the "E-mail Settings".  When you go to your Account Settings Screen, toward the top (right under the tabs for accessing different parts of your account) you should see a links for "Vacation Hold", "Daily DIgest", "Daily Wish List",...  Click on  the "Daily Wish List".  If you want to get the daily wish list e-mail, you need to turn the Status to "On"  and choose which catagories you want to see.
