Hi ladies & gents -

I have seen a few users talk about where they are on their WL status and also how many copies of the books you may have posted are in the PBS system.

I have looked for this an I am not finding it.

Can someone direct me please? Thanks so much!

To check where you are on the wishlist, go to your wishlist...each book will have a gray colored ! next to it.  If you hover your mouse over the ! you will see where you are in line.

To see how many copies of a book are in the system, add the book to your reminder list.  You'll see that info in the listing somewhere.

Edited to correct an error.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I so wanted to use this tool (so nifty!) but I could not for the life of me figure out how. I read your post and then searched the Help Docs and figured it out!

Such a cool feature.

To see where you are on the WL, go to your WL, and put your cursor over the circle with the exclamation mark.  It will tell you that you are x/y on the WL. 

For how many copies of a book are in the system for non-WL books, that used to be on the main listing page for that book, and it would say in the description how many copies of the book were in the system.  But I'm not seeing that now -- maybe I am looking at the wrong place, maybe that has been eliminated?

The only way I know to see how many copies of a book are in the system is to put it on your wishlist. When you do that, it shows up there as the last line of the text. I never saw the one in the description. Probably before my time.
