I was looking at this thread on another forum about how many John Grisham books there were posted. It made me wonder. Take thebooks on my shelf. Is there any mechanism to find out how far from the top of the PBS list my posted books are?

Though you can tell how many copies are on the system by adding it to your reminder list.     If you have the only copy on the system, the book bazaar .....opps they changed it  to 2 copies on the system -- you can list the book!  http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=195234

No there isn't.  They have said that they are working on having book listings or I guess bookshelves show how many copies are posted and the rate of request but not your place in line.  The reasoning behind that being place in line isn't as important as the rate of request.  A book with 20 copies in the system but only requested once every 2 yrs will have a slower moving line than a book with 200 copies posted but a request rate of 10 a month.  I'm thinking that this will be implemented when the Reminder List goes and they finally unveil the new WL. But they've been talkign about that for like 3yrs now.
