I Don't know why the reminder list is giving me so much trouble, but it is. All I want is to see, is the amount of books that have been posted for the one I am posting. I followed the instructions and have it changed from wish list to reminder list on my lists, but when I post a book I don't see the amount of books that are listed for that particular book.  Anyone with any suggestions?

Not sure what you are seeing, but all books on my Reminder List follow this:

Angels and Demons (Robert Langdon, Bk 1) :: Dan Brown
ISBN-13: 9780671027360 - ISBN-10: 0671027360
Copies Available: 2,358

I feel like the reminder list used to also tell me how many members were wishing for a book, but now it doesn't.

Melissa, I don't see what you are showing on you on my list, that is showing on  yours.  I am doing something wrong

Kathy, specifically, what are you seeing?

The reminder list will show how many copies are in the system, but if none are posted it will not have an Order This Book Button. It will have a Post This Book Button. If it is wished for it will have a Red W or Green WA, the green one means the member has the book on Auto Request.

The Wishlist will not allow you to Wish for a book that is posted, so I dont think there are any copies of your book, if you are able to convert it from your Wishlist.

Hmm. Now I'm befuddled!

There isn't a place for me to format my Reminder list settings, it just is what it is.

Maybe send a message via the "contact us" because it sounds like there is a glich with your account.

When I see a book I like, I click on the "reminder list" icon.

Then, when I go to the "My Account" tab, instead of clicking on "My Bookshelf" or "My Wish List" I click on my "Reminder List."

All the books on my reminder list are listed by Title, Author, ISBN, Copies Available, and Rating.

I don't think there is a step that you are missing/doing wrong, I think it's a technical gliche.

Good luck!

I think I have it now.  Are the numbers to the right of the stars the number of books posted by members?.  I thought it was the amount of reviews that the book had.  Is that  correct?

As far as I recall, the reminder list has never shown how many wishers there are when you're looking at the list of books--you have to click on the book details for that. It will just show that there are 0 copies in the system. It only shows how many copies are available in system for books that are currently available.

Kathy,

The numbers to the right of the stars indicate how many people have rated the book.

Look at my first reply: The reminder list says "Copies Available:      "

Well, that is what I thought initially.  Thanks for the reply

Cheryl, It's not the amount of books in the wish list  , it's the amount of books listed in the system.
