Subject: Members Wishing : 0 ???

Why is it that some book data pages will have "Members Wishing: 0", while others will not even have the "Members Wishing" line at all?

I originally thought that if a book was not wish listed then the "Member Wishing" line would not appear, but it obviously does for some books.

It is also obvious I have been a member long enough that I'm starting to get anal about inconsistences.

I've found that when it shows Members Wishing: 0 - it indicates that there are no books with that ISBN in the system.  When it doesn't show the MW, it indicates that there are books in the system with that ISBN.  HTH.  Pat

Yup, Pats right. Zero copies gets the members wishing: 0 notation and books in the system just have an Order button.
