Is there a way to search for which books are on the most members wish lists?

You can go tot the Top 50's list and see the most posted and the most requested.  It's under the Community tab.

Be careful with the most requested however. It's kind of a misnomer. Even though it might be a most requested book most of those books will sit on your shelf for quite a while since there are so many in the system. Even if you run sales/deals through the Book Bazaar they'll still sit on your shelf while others will fly off.

If you're trying to figure out what books to post so the books will move quickly use the wishlisted tab.

Someone just posted a list of the top 50 WL books in the CMT.  You can use that  if you are used book hunting. 

The FIFO for some of those heavily posted books can move pretty quickly.  Mostly on the newer ones.  But I wouldn't go scouting them out a UBS/thrift stores either.
