I've always had 200. Okay, not always, but for a really long time. Anyway, now it'll only let me have 199? It's been like this since they added the new features to the WL (which I really like). Now granted, I haven't gone through and counted--I have a 6.5 month old--I don't really have time. LOL But it says on my WL 1-199.

Does everyone else have this problem, or am I lucky? :)

Have you tried sorting it different ways?  Sorting it by author can make it look like less books if you have two or more by one author.

When I look at your WL it shows you having 200.

Easy way to count your wish list is to download it into an Excel Spreadsheet.  Like this  http://i701.photobucket.com/albums/ww19/pvc_photos/Capture-11.jpg

It shows 201 rows for your wish list.  With the first row for titles that makes 200.

There are two entries for "Bookmarked for Murder" on your list, having the same ISBN. That's a glitch, and it's why you see 199 books while we see 200. You need to use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the screen and ask them to delete one of these books from your wish list.

Oddly, when I downloaded my list it has 201 entries as opposed to the 200 I see here.  very mysterious.

ETA - Ah.  The list begins on line 2.

Beth - You click the "download" button on you WL.  Save the file, and open it up in excel.

Here's a picture.  You just click the two buttons marked 1 & 2 in the picture.
