and I know it's a big WL item, but there is no W next to the item on my bookshelf.  Is there a lag between the time I post and the time it's recognized as a WLed book?  Also, does that mean that some lucky person could happen upon my bookshelf and order it before the person in 1st place?

ETA:  Never mind...that was quick.

YAK!  You posted it???  Dang, woman, all you had to do was tell me to buddy you a credit!  (Would have saved you repacking and postage.  (To explain: Laurie had sent it to me to read and I had just sent it back to her.)

Does it have a ! next to it on your shelf?  If so that means it's in the 1hr buyers remorse window. If not than the ISBN# doesn't match the ones that are on WL.  PBS will send emails to the people on WL that another version has been posted and most likely it will get ordered right away if it hasn't by the time I post this.  If that doesn't happen you can post it on book bazaar.  Most likely this post here will do it as the WL for that is so long.

LOL!  Bonnie, my daughter wanted me to get it back so she could read it.  Turns out her boyfriend bought her a hardcover copy for Christmas and told me I didn't have to save it for her.  I didn't find that out until after I'd received the book back from you.  No biggie.

Thanks Mary.  I think you're right and it was the 1hr window.
