When I click the drop down menu to sort my tbr pile, there's a wishlist option.  I thought that would mean it would put all of the books that someone is wishing for at the top, but it doesn't do that.  Is it a glitch?  Am I guessing the function wrong?

Is there any way to sort the tbr pile so all of the wish listed books are together so I could prioritize my reading list?  I have a couple of pages in my tbr pile, and I was thinking that it would be easier to see all of those wishlisted books that way.

I would like to know what the initials mean --  and the other ones when I look at a book -- as you can tell -- I'm very new here

 

Thanks -- Mim

It has never worked for me either.  I thought it was cool when I noticed the option. But then it did some weird sort of it's own.  No order that I could tell.  It has WL and non-WL mixed and it just seemed random.  I would love to sort it that way.

I can't get my Books I've Read list to sort properly either.  It will sort the first page, but when I advance to the second page, they're all messed up.  I don't think it used to be a problem. 

Mary...good grief, it's hard to type accurately when all I can do is stare at your sig line!! LOL..
