I don't want to post a book unless I know someone on PBS is looking it.  Where can I find out?

You also might want to check how many copies of the books you have are in the system.  if there are only a few copies it may go fast even if not wishlisted right now.  You can do this by searching for a book and then adding it to your reminder list.  When you look at the list you will see how many copies are available for a given book.

If you use the Wishlist Search, make sure you put the ISBN in the keywords search box, if you use a title you will come up with different versions of the book and your book might not be the one people are wishing for.

You can also just type in the ISBN at the top in the search field and it will bring up the book. If there is no order option, then there are no copies in the system.

Some books there may be a lot of copies in the system, but they will get wished for eventually.
