Is anyone else having problems adding to the their wishlists? I should have 4 spots available but it won't let me add anything. It keeps giving me the "only 200 spots" message.

I checked out your wishlist and it says you have 204 books on it!

ETA: Cheked again and now it says 196. Weird....

LOL  --- it was only showing 196 on my end but I found the problem. Through some glitch on the last page the same book was on there 8 times!!!!! Go figure!

Hopefully it'll work now!

Make sure you do not have your shelf sorted by author. That will produce the 196 amount. I'm guessing the 204 comes from currently or recently having had WL books either arrive damaged, go lost, or come in the wrong version? That can cause an open spot that doesn't stay open, you fill it, and then the WL book has the prob, and you now have 201 books listed, and then this scenario happens again 4 times. Could have even been over a period of time, didn't mean to imply that it could only have happened in a short amount of time. But, that's HOW it happens anyway,

If you sort by author, and some of the books don't have anything in the author box, they won't show up on the list, so it could say that you have 196, when you really have 200, only four have nothing in the author line.  This happened to me some time back, and is probably still like that.

However, in your case, that isn't what is happening.  You have this book in your with list twice, and for some reason the title sort accepts it and the author sort does not:

Claimed By a Scottish Lord (Mystical Bliss Bk 2) Melody Thomas 0061898708     9780061898709

You should also know that having a book with a PBS-assigned "isbn" in your wish list is of little value.  Fixing the duplication and taking out that one will open up two slots for you!
