YEHAAAAA! I received 2 wishlist books in a span of one hour. That's never happened to me before.

Has anyone ever received more than 2 wishlist books in a single day?

I did once. I had 15 come in!

....but since all 15 were one series from one person, I think maybe it doesn't count!

Yep, it sure happens. My WL coughs up books in streaks. Sometimes I'll go a week without one coming up and then WHAM, there'll be 3 or 4 within the space of a few hours. Weird how that happens!

I don't have any wishlist books coming in at this moment, but I noticed yesterday that I have about 15 books where I'm finally 1 or 2 and if they all come in around the same time, I could get snowed under.

It's always exciting when you finally get to the front of the line on a book.  But it's much more fun when it happens with more than one book at a time.

I had my account on hold for around 6months.  I had most of my books in storage, a house to sell, a house to buy and a cross country move to plan.  When I took it off hold the beginning of Aug-I was getting 4-5 a day the first week.  I had close to 30 in Aug alone.  I put my account on hold again.  I took it off again recently but I'm down to 9 credits now so I put it back on hold.   I guess I worked my way up to the top spot on most of my WL.

I'm not sure if they were all in one day or not, but right now I have 4 wishlist books on their way to me!!

I don't think I've had more than two in a day, but I think I had at least five last week.
