I have several "saved searches" that I check everytime that I'm on the site.  I clicked on one of the searches and it brought up a list of 3 books.  One of these books is on my wishlist.  I know for a fact that it was this particular book because it had the blue wishlist link showing on the info page. Why would it be showing up on a saved search as "orderable" and not have been offered to me?

I am not sure I am understanding the question...was the book, with that ISBN#, actually on your wish list? If so it should have been offered to you...I would guess it was a glitch. Earlier this week several members were talking about a book that had 109 wishers that was showing up as orderable and I think that was shown to be a glitch. If that is the case, I would use the "contact us" button and let the Team know what you experienced. Did you request it? I am curious if it actually let you request it or gave you the "I'm sorry, this book is not available in the data base right now" message.

Yes, I did order the book; it is sitting under my Books Ordered tab awaiting on member.  The ISBN did match; there is only 1 version available.  I'll take your suggestion and contact TPTB and let them know.

Someone posted yesterday or the day before about finding a book listed both as having 1 copy available and 108 WL.  Same ISBN it just depended on how you looked it up.  So something is going on with the system.  I would report it to PBS.
