I have several books on audiocassette I would like but I am not bright enough to figure out how to create a wishlist for my wants. Is there anyone who would be willing to provide instructions to me? Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

It's easy...just find the book you want by typing it into the search box at the top of the screen.  Make sure you are searching "all books" rather than "posted books" (you can change those options to the left of the screen after your initial search).  You can only add books to your wishlist that are not presently available for order in the system.  Those books will have a "wish" button to the right, hit that button, and its on your list.  To look at your list, just go to the "my lists" tab on your main account page.

Plus if you can't put it on your WL that means it's available in the system.  Be sure to check the box for audio books since that's what you're interested in.

And if you are requesting audio books, you might want to go to your settings and turn off the email for different versions of the same book.

If there are copies in the system, but you aren't ready to order them, you could put them on your reminder list instead.  It's another button under the "Order this book" button.
