Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to tell your "place in line" for a book you have on your wish list?

 

Thanks!

Yes there is.  There is an exclamation point next to your wish date, put your arrow over it and it will tell you what position you are in.

Yes.  When you look at your wishlist, in each entry is a small gray circle with an exclamation point in it.  If you hold your mouse over the circle, a thing will appear to tell you your place in line.

On the WL's where you are really far back - you can keep track of your progress to the front of the line by putting the number you started out as (I do 45/45) in a "note" that "sticks" to the illustrated cover  where you can see it and is private so only you see it.  You can also put other things in your notes on WL books.  It's very handy and I'm so thankful to PBS for making it possible!

I'm glad that they did that to.  I just wish that I didn't have to put notes on everything, since most of my tags had been deleted.
