Just wondering....i have a book in my TBR pile, showing that its on a member's wishlist, however if i look at the title or even ISBN in a search...it shows as having 2 copies actually available....just wondering if the book is being specifically wished from me or maybe its just a system glich???...curious, as sometimes i decide what i'm going to read next by what people are wishing for ....

 

Thanks!!!

Happy Halloween!

The only place you can view the number of available copies of a book is in your reminder list.  Could you have misread the section that shows how many members are wishing for the book?

You can't see how many books are available on the book page. That is how many are wishing for the book. In order to see the available amounts of the book you have to add it to your Reminder List.

Do you happen to be seeing that new little number next to the stars? That is the number of times the book has been rated.
