Thank you, Geri! I just wondered because I add books to my reminder list a lot.  I was hoping there wasn't a limit for it!

I almost wish there were a limit to the Reminder List, I'd be forced to do a better job of maintaining it. I'm a Reminder List hoarder, and it's a complete mess in there LOL

ditto James.  I don't even really know what's on mine anymore.

I pretty much add anything that looks interesting, but my list is so long that I'm starting to think I should at least go through it & delete what I'm not interested in after all!

I'm at 470-something.  I go through my reminder list from time to time to make sure it's current, because I use it as wishlist overflow, which means that I'm pretty sure I want every book on there.  (About 95 percent of them have 0 copies in the system.)  So, when you subtract the 100 or so that are alternate versions, it leaves...almost 400 more books that I want to get?  Plus the almost 300 on my wishlist??  Crazy.

I think there's a special self-help group now for PBS Reminder List Hoarders.  Or maybe it's one of those late-night TV shows.

I started using the personal note feature for my Reminder List   ---on TBR----Put on WL-----Available for game swap---etc... works for me.

Diane, I need to start going through my reminder list more often!  It would help me out to keep up with books I still want to read vs. books I don't really care about anymore.  I put a lot of books on there if I don't have time to read through what they are about so that I can check them out later but then sometimes I forget to look through the list.

haha, sign me up for that self-help group!!!  I would definitely be considered a PBS hoarder!!  My reminder list has 1136 books on it right now. crying

Fara, that is a good idea! I will have to start doing that!  That would help me out a lot!

The trouble with my reminder list is that there are a lot of books on it that are also on my wishlist. In the old days if you moved a book from your reminder list to your wishlist it was automatically deleted from the reminder list. Now you have to do it manually (which I never remember to do) so my reminder list is kind of a mess.

Anne-

I noticed that about the reminder list. Really a bummer, because I too forget to go in and delete items I've already requested.

But I'm pretty sure when you buy books from the PBS marketplace that it deletes them from your wishlist once they have been shipped? Weird how it does it for one and not the other.....
