I am always so surprised (and pleased) that some Christian books are so hard to get - I try to wait 'patiently' for my Wish List to bring results!  Now I am waiting for Beverly Lewis, Wanda Brunstetter, Cindy Woodsmall and Nancy Turner books! 

Do others find this to be true?

I have gotten a couple of Nancy Moser books here.  I've even shipped one out.  My TBR pile is so large right now that I could read only stuff on people's wish list and take months to get stuff out!

I have noticed that too, some of them have huge wish lists! Whenever I post a popular author like the ones you mentioned it gets snapped up by a wish lister right away.

Don't forget to occasionally click on the authors name.  You can sometimes find your wish books under different isbns or types.  

Another way to find books on your wish list is to drop a part of the authors name.

For example: Ruth Axtell Morren you can also find books for her under Ruth Morren

Another example would be: Susan May Warren's book Taming Rafe that has 18 wishers can be found under Susan Warren Taming Rafe a hardcover edition available in system right now.

Yup, I have a bunch of Karen Kingsbury on mine but they do come up, just very slowly. Since I have almost 300 books here to read anyway, i'm ok waiting. :)
