I'm confused by something on my Wish List.  I have two books on my WL that have the word, "Posted" next to the words, "Your Position 1 of 4..."  When I hover my mouse over the word "Posted" it says this, "A Posted book is a book that has been submitted by a member and is currently on at least one PBS bookshelf, available to request." 

If it's available to request, why aren't I being notified?  And why can't I find it available when I do a search on it?  I don't have the book on hold or anything, so I'm wondering why "Posted" is there...

Can anyone enlighten me?  Thanks.

I will try to copy/paste it here:

Wish Date: 9/17/2009 - Your position: 1 of 4 - Last Posted: 02/25/2010 - Estimate: N/A

It means the book was "last posted" on 2/25/2010 (i.e., the book has not been posted since that date.)

ETA: The good news is that since you're first on the WL, the next time the book is posted, it will be offered to you.
