I used to be able to see how many others were requesting a particular book, but now am not seeing that.  What happened, or am I just way too blind?  It really was a nice feature to see if I was ever actually had a chance of getting a book....obviously some books are popular, and many requested it, which encourages me to find it elsewhere if I want it sooner.

If you type in the ISBN , the click on the book on the  screen it will tell you how many are wishing for it.

I just tried it with the book I am reading now, it has 16 wishers

If you add the book to your wishlist, then hold your cursor over the gray exclamation point, it will show you where you are in line for that particular book.
