Can someone remind me what should be done if unrelated books are showing up in the wishlist expander? I was wishing (if we can verb it that way) Sage Cohen's The Productive Writer and got this long list which includes books about zombies, Jane Austen, researching your family tree, taking the ACT and Scandanavian-Americans. Enjoyably random, but probably not correct.

That is weird. Looks like a glitch so I suggest contacting the Team via the Feedback page: http://www.paperbackswap.com/feedback/index.php

Just note that they'll get back to you via email not PM (doesn't matter how many times I send in feedback, I always forget I should be waiting for the response via email.)

That's actually a known technical issue, and one that they've been trying to resolve for a while.  There's nothing we as members can to do fix it, we just have to be patient until they find a solution.

Although I do find your particular list -- "How to Be a Productive Writer"  =  "You Might be a Zombie" to be amusing, Laura. devil

Thanks, all. Elizabeth, maybe the zombie thing explains the lack of productiveness - after all, if someone's obsessed with eating brains, how much writing can they really fit in? :)

That's been going on for months!  But I usually only get 2 unrelated books when I add one to my WL.
