You can see my last book postred is 11/16/08, but I put on 7 since then and they're nowhere to be found.

Can you give me one of the titles that you just added?  Maybe they are not showing up on your side, but will show up to everyone else.

My wish is showing 193. 2 of the titles were The art of racing in the rain and the united states of argula.

Nope, those titles aren't showing up.  When I go to your wishlist, It says you have 200 books.  Maybe you should contact the site and tell them that you show 193, but others viewing your wishlist see 200. 

Sorry I can't be more help.

Resort your list by title.  Then all 200 books will show up.  193 books show up when you sort by author -- I guess some of the books you added were authorless in the system.

Nope still not working. Apparently the live chat person is off the job, haven't heard back on that.

Susan, Britney is correct. When I view your WL by Author it comes up as 193 books, If I sort it by title it comes up with 200.

Some books do not have authors so those books will not show up on your WL if you have it set to sort by Author.

If you count it's still 193 and these are new books with authors. It's still malfunctioning and the book are missing both ways. so it's still 193 and the books are not converting/

Susan, this is your wishlist as I see it.  Hit "resort".  Then choose "title".  All the books should show.

None will convert Susan, because you already have 200 on your WL and cannot add any more. You have your WL sorted by author so you are not seeing everything that is currently on your WL. If you do a resort and select title you will get the complete list. When it is showing 193 you are not seeing the following books that really are on your WL:

American Communal Utopias

Ecovillage Living: Restoring the Earth and Her People

Freedom at Your Fingertips: Get Rapid Physical and Emotional Relief with the Breakthrough System of Tapping

Mindful Politics: A Buddhist Guide to Making the World a Better Place

Slice of Organic Life

Spirit of the Wheel Meditation Deck with Poster and Booklet

Survival Wisdom & Know How: Everything You Need to Know to Thrive in the Wilderness

These do not have authors so they will disappear when you sort your WL by author.

As a side, I am pretty sure Spirit of the Wheel Meditation Deck with Poster and Booklet is not postable on PBS.

Susan, everyone is correct - your wishlist is maxed out!  (I think I'm the tour guide that was off the job last night!  I did log off and went to bed :-b)  But this has been discussed with other tour guides, and it's definitely why you can't add to your wishlist. 

Melanie, thanks for listing the 7 books that aren't showing up on the author sort!  Hopefully that helps make more sense of this :)

Won't it be nice when the new WL system goes into effect and we no longer have a limit on the number of books we can add to our WL? It's still in the works, and the PBS Team will put it in the newsletter when it's ready (which might still take a while), but it will certainly be nice.

Rachel, that's the one thing I'm excited for with the new WL! No limits in sight!! :)
