Has this happened to anyone?  I added a book to my wish list tonight.  It says I am 1 of 15.  How did I get to be #1 when I just added it?  Isn't that weird?

Was it a book mentioned in a newpaper or on a radio program or something?  Or is it a new publication?  When a book gets some publicity, sometimes a bunch of people will all add it at once.

Are you sure you didn't already have it there? If you re-wish it doesn't affect your place in line (just don't try to add one to your Reminder List).

You can see the actual wish date on the listing. I bet Melanie is right and you already wished for it before.

I heard about it about 2-3 months ago.  I checked the date added and it says 5/8/2008, so it was new to my wish list.  My position is now 16/16.  I think there was just some weird quirk going on with the system last night.

I don't mind being #1 but I don't want to jump over the whole list.  LOL  Glad it's fixed.
