and I should know the answer but I just posted the book by Valerie Bertinelli called Losing It, And Gaining My Life Back One Pound At A Time; there are 36 people wishing for it but it didn't come up as a wishlisted book. The ISBN # seem to be the same.

I just searched for that book and there is not one available in the system.  Are you sure that it is not on 48 hr hold?

It could be on autorequest which would put it on your bookshelf with a gray ! for the 1st hour. Then it would show up as a book request.

If the first wisher had it on autorequest (and had a credit available for the order), it won't show up on your account page for one hour. Check on your bookshelf itself -- hover the cursor over the exclamation point to the right of the book to see if that's the case.

Yes, that was exactly it because now it's been requested. :) Thank you. :)
