So I'm a little muddle brained following a car accident in which I was rear ended while I was a t a full stop . a book I requested has now by-passed two posters(the first timed out so it went to a second poster), but it has now disappeared from my request list so I checked to see if it had no copies left in system and wound up on my WL, but it's not there either. Should it not have gone automatically to my WL if there are no other copies posted in the system?

That's my understanding. Don't know why it wouldn't have worked the same for you.

It should be added to your WL.  I do see that The President's Wife was added to your WL today.  Is that the book?  It only shows one wisher (you).

No, Mary, I just added "The President's Wife" last night after finishing another of the author's books. Guess  I need to go back and open the book info and add it back in to either WL or RL.

Hmmm, "Sweet Dreams, Irene" by Jan Burke is listed as available, don't understand why my request didn't roll over to the next posted copy in FIFO unless the only copies available are the ones initially offered to me that didn't meet my RC.

If your RC was turned down by everyone who had the book available, then the book will be on your reminder list, not your wish list. You won't be able to add it to your wish list if other copies are available.

You should have been sent an email when the last transaction ended. You can check your Club Communications page to see all the emails PBS has sent you.

What Cathy said -- it goes to your reminder list so that the RC-rejecting members don't end up with the same request.

OK, book IS on my reminder list since both copies available in system have smoke exposure and violate my RC. Soooooo I just have to wait a while and hope they get requested, then I can put it on my WL to get a different copy.

So if I had Sweet Dreams and posted it, would it let her know?

No, if you have a book on your reminder list, you aren't notified when a new copy is posted. If Jeanne sees that there are 3 copies posted at some point in the future, she can resubmit her request and the first 2 people will deny it again and then it will be passed to the third.
