My wishlist has been attacked! Well, in a good way...I've had 9 wishlisted books come up over the weekend! Wheeeeeeeee! Now I need to get busy finding books to replace those. Time to comb the reminder list. I love it when a "problem" like that enters my life! PBS often is "streaky" like this, for me anyway. Now I probably won't get another one for a week. wink

Fun!!  I had to put my shelf on hold because I was getting one or two hits a day and I don't have time to get to the post office until June! LOL!

Yeah, it's cool seeing some of those books I have had WL'd for awhile coming in. I would die without the PBS postage, LeeAnne, I can only go to the PO one day a week if I'm lucky, so I don't mind getting requests every day, I just drop 'em in the blue box in front of work. Fortunately my requests keep up with my WL pretty well so I don't run low on credits.

Mine's gone crazy too. A few months ago, I managed to get near the front of a bunch of wish lists (I must have checked Fantastic Fiction right after the publishers announced their April/May releases), and they're all coming available now. I can't believe I've got 8 books en route to me, and 7 of them are from my WL. (and why did I order that 8th one now? it's not like I needed another book to add to my TBR pile.)

That's a good problem to have!  I went through a spell like that not too long ago.  I finally had to stop my wishlist because I just didn't have the time to read everything I'd recently gotten!  Such a problem to have I tell ya!

Melani, I never let that stop my wishlist...LOL I have over 600 books on my TBR and just keep adding to it. Actually, I am going to do a weed-out this weekend and list a few things that have been on my shelf for years and that I've lost interest in. If I ever go broke and can't afford to send books or to buy books, I will have enough to sustain me for a good long while. :)

I now have 12 (!!) books either on the way to me or requested. Sheesh, when it rains it pours! (Not that I'm complaining, mind you.)
