Over the weekend, I was offered 5 WL books... three of them have been on my WL for a looooooong time. 

I'm so excited... I feel like a kid in a candy... ummmm.. book store! 

Happy Dancin' here in East Cupcake (rural NE, LOL)!

I've had 5 offers within the last week. I need to start reading faster so I can repost them when I'm done.

I went through a very dry spell - it was depressing (not that I needed any more books!).  Suddenly, 12 books showed up.  Some were for books on my WL for a long time.  Guess when it rains - it pours.

I actually had to turn one down today because I got offered 2 versions of the same book that has been on my wishlist for months.

I've had about four or five become available this week alone, and jumped several places in line on about a dozen others. I think it's all the new members that news article brought that are largely responsible for this. Yay for the newbies.

I had 6 last week.

In August after I took my account of a long hold for a cross country move: I had around 30 WL offers in Aug and another 20 or so in Sept.  Good thing I had been hording credits.  I went from having around credits to less then 10.  Luckily I had read some WL books during that move and some to post.  But I actually went back on hold for a bit to build up my credit cushion.

I had 5 WL books come up this week.  Its kind of making me nervous because I have quite a few credits tied up in swaps and am getting low on usable ones.  I might actually have to buy credits.  Thats never happened!  Yay for WL books!

Well, color me thrilled, even though I've only had one WL book offer, I am jazzed to see so many coming through the system.  Hopefully that means I'll be moving up a few notches on the lists I'm on!

Mine always tends to go in streaks. It's been about the same as usual this week, I think I've got 4 on the way to me and another pending.

I did just do a check of looking for books in the system that are on my wishlist by clicking on the author's name, and found 3 in system that I'd been wishlisting in a different version, so ordered those, too. No idea why I wasn't notified about them when they were posted, as I do have those e-mails turned on. But oh well, I found 'em! I recently found one that had been on my WL for almost the whole time I've been a member here, Heresy by Sharan Newman. That one I found doing the 'click on author's name' too and was shocked to see it in the system since it's one I'm always checking for! (Score! LOL)

Between WL books and books on my RL that haven't been in the system in ages, I've gotten 13 books in the past 3 weeks or so!

Not exactly raining for me, but I am very happy that a book I've been #1 on the Wishlist for since July of 2007 was finally posted today!

I hadn't really thought about it until I saw this thread, but YES! I have gotten around 20 WL books in the past three weeks! Makes up for those long dry spells!

Happy Dancin' for Everyone!
