I went to add a book to my WL this morning and I got a message that my WL was full but I was sure I had some openings. Went to check, since I normally sort my WL by authors...thinking perhaps I was wishing for books with no authors listed...I sorted by title and started looking for books without authors. Instead I found that two books were showing up multiple times: one book three times and one book six times. They were both books I had wished for a while ago and didn't used to be listed multiple times but that's why my WL was suddenly full. The system allowed me to delete the extra copies fortunately. This is something I've never encountered before and I am sure it was just a hiccup in the system but thought I'd mention it in case others are running into the same issue.

PBS has been acting really weird for me the past 2 days, so there's definitely some sort of maintenance going on. More than half of my page loads don't go through and I get a "Server Error" message. Refreshing does no good, I just have to walk away for a few hours and check back later hoping it's fixed by then.

I had the same problem last week with extra copies of wish listed books showing up.  It was brought to my attention by a friend who was looking at my wish list.  I was able to remove the extras also and they were all duplicates with the same ISBN.  Haven't had it happen again and I have checked but this morning early I got the page error message several times.

I've had that happen before, and being afraid that if I took one off, it would take the other off, I waited it out, but finally contacted TPTB and they took the duplicate off. Pat
