Usually my WL is maxed out.  Lately it's been hovering around 195-197.  This morning I tried to add a book to my WL and it said I couldn't because I already had the max of 200.  When I went to my WL, it showed 197.  What gives?  Am I hiding three books on there?

How do you have it sorted? If you sort by Author then sometimes it doesn't show all the books. Sometimes cookbooks, craft books, travel, text etc.., don't show up under the author sort.

ETA: When I click on your WL it shows 200.

Yep, I get 200 also. I bet you had sorted by author and had three books without an author listed--anthologies, or books with short stories by multiple people, etc also will sometimes not have an author listed.

Thank you!  I never even thought of that.  <sigh>  Guess I need to weed something out.  :)

Here are 5 items that you can delete.


Suddenly Lynn Kurland   133216
Unlawful Contact Pamela Clare   138766
Only Pleasure (Bound Hearts Bk 10) Lora Leigh   179556
Shameless Embraces (Bound Hearts Bks 6 & 7) Lora Leigh   199949
Stolen Seduction Elisabeth Naughton   230508


These books were originally posted without an ISBN, hence the short numbers. These listings describe a specific copy of the book, and only that exact copy can fulfill your wish, so it doesn't really make sense to wish for these. It's better to delete them and wish for the ones that have actual ISBNs.

The curse of short ISBN's remaining in the system :(
