Did PBS used to have the ability to see how many copies of a book are available?  I really miss that and it is available on the CD Swap site.

Katalin--The only way to see how many copies of a book are available is to add it to your Reminder List.

Yes, the number of copies available (if any) is visible on your Reminder List.  Looks like this:

Oh... great tip! I've been wondering about that very thing. Luckily, I have things on my reminder list that I can go check on right this instant.

I wish they would put it on the TBR pile as well.  I can see why they don't want it on every listing because they don't want people to be reluctant to post books with a lot of copies.  But people just put it on their RC to tell anyway so it's not like you can't tell.

I wish the software at each site all worked the same way and was standardized.

If you are a member at all 3, you get used to doing something one way here, then have to do it differently at the sister sites.
