There used to ne an option to check books on your Wish List and convert them to your Reminder List ... seems to be gone?  Also, whatever became of the idea of making the Wish List unlimited?

thanks,

So many people were accidentally removing books from their WL using that convert button and then complaining that they lsot their place in line-so they got rid of it.  They made it possible to have a book on both lists, which wasn't possible before.  I'm not really sure why anyone would need them on both lists but people tried to do it and then were upset when they lost their place in line. 

the new WL is still in the works.

There is a less direct route to do the same thing J.R.  For a wishlist book I want moved to reminder list, just hover over the book (while in your wishlist) until the little information window opens.  It should contain the RL or WL button.  Click the button of your choice, then you can leave or delete the original listing.  Two steps instead of one, but gets the job done.
