I'm wondering what would be the easiest way to compile a list of some of the most popular wish list titles and authors. 

Next time my library has a used book sale I would like to have some idea what to look for so I can stock my bookshelf with books people really want.  Any suggestions?

Hi Lisa, Under the Community Tab, you can go to Top 50 and see the Most Wished for books, as well as the Top 50 swappers, posted books, requested books and member referrals. It is sortable (is that a word?) Or you can check the Club Wishlist where you can sort alphabetically by title or by genre. Sometimes I copy and paste it into a word doc and print that to take with me.

Let's see ....  (not absolutely sure I have the spellings of the authors' names correct)

Jodi Picoult - novels

David McCullough - non-fiction - history

Kim Harrison (paranormal romances)

Kate Collins (cozy mysteries)

Kris Radish- novels


I'm sure other members will think of more!

Thanks, gals!   I did see the Top 50 link AFTER I asked the question.  New here, ya know.   Off to look some more.

Just to add, if you see a book by a wishlisted author, but that book isn't WL'd, it'll still probably move pretty quickly.   Last week I decided to get rid of 3 of my Kim Harrison's.  Only one was WL'd, but the other two were snapped up in a couple of days.
