Hi!

Is this possible? I am curious about the books on my booklist that I have posted, is it possible to find out what position my book is posted in? Meaning, how many other people posted the same book before me, so I would know if I am close to having it requested or not.

I tried but couldn't figure out a way to get this information.

Thanks!

Lauren

There really isn't any way to find this out at the moment. The best you can do is to add the books on your bookshelf to your reminder list. You can then see how many copies are in the system. But you won't know the position of yours among that number.

I find this incredibly frustrating. :-}

The only way you'd have any possible inkling of where you are on the BL is if you'd posted it to your reminder list when you posted it to your BL.  This isn't 'set in concrete' as to where you are now because there are deals, people order then cancel, etc., but it would have given you a rough idea.  Other than that, there's no way.  Pat
