Finally a book I have had on my wishlist since the day I joined (09/02/06) as finally been offered to me!  I started out as #8 of 8 and remained at that for many, months.  The book is out of circulation so I had little doubt I would ever see it, But I waited and the line grew long behind me so I felt I wasn't alone in thinking maybe someday.  Then over the summer I started inching towards the coveted #1 spot and finally got there a few months ago.  This morning wha-la I was notified that it would be coming to me soon as I had it on auto accept!

*squee*

So take heart my fellow PBS'ers eventually even the hard to find, long awaited book will make it's way to you!

Yay, Tammy!  I waited for more than a year for the first book I ever WLed (I was 1 of x the entire time), and it finally came.  It was worth the wait!  Yes, there is hope, even for those out-of-print obscure books.  :->

Always good to hear!  I have one on autorequest for a friend.  It is a YA paperback long out of print.  She has tried for years to find it.  I'll probably get a bottle of champagne the day PBS comes through!
