sort your TBR pile to show the WL books?

I just found that feature today.  Phew!  I've got to get busy reading hot and heavy.  I have almost 100 wish listed books on Mt TBR which is now over 600 books!  Oh lordy, busy, busy.

Its been there for a bit now (maybe two or three months) I begged and begged for that feature. See we used to be able to drag and drop sort the lists and I always listed my WL books first. Then they changed it and you couldn't drag and drop anymore and there was no WL sort. I was sad but then I was happy when I realized we could sort by WL that is so much easier than drag and drop :D

I'm glad they listened to ya'll who wanted it. Me? Not so much. The only time I even look at the TBR list is to post a book I've read from there, and at that point, it means I'm done reading it so I don't care if it is wishlisted or not. LOL

Its been there for quite a while, it actually started working (mostly) about a month or two ago. I've always used a tag to keep track of them. I do use it on my TBR more these days.

Cheryl it wass a boarder line ocd behavior with me when it was drag and drop but these days Im low on credits so Im reading WL books exclusively so that when I get a little money I can post them. With this feature I dont have to work as hard to find a WL book on my TBR.

It's been there a long time but it never worked right until recently.

When it first started working it was funny because every page of my TBR would still have one or two WL books on it even though it should've been with the other WL'd books.  Now it works great.  I really do love it - it really helps to see which ones are WL'd and how many (click on the link) are wanting it.  I posted a WL'd book last night and it went on Wishlist hold and apparently was refused.  No biggie - I expect a lot of the books with only 1 or 2 wishers won't be claimed.

Ruth,

I had one that was on a WL and I guess it was only one person because it was on the 48 hour hold and then gone.  As you say no biggie. 

I think I'll read a WL book then a non WL book.  Gotta get that pile down!
