oh, I hate it when a book is WL and you post it and NO ONE accepts the request!  Just had that happen with 2 books I picked up cheap at the FOL sale.  I don't always check to see how many wishers there are, just see if it is WL.

Jeanne - I've had that happen several times, and it is disappointing. One thing about it is the fact that you've pulled those two WLs off, and if and when someone orders the book, you're #1 on the list.  Pat

yep, sometimes when a book that was recently on the WL gets posted, it is a short time before it is requested thru FIFO.

Yep - I had a WL yesterday that had one wisher, and then saw that there was also the next book in the series on the WL, so I PMed her to see if she'd like both, and she decided she didn't want either at this time, so I posted them to my BL and both were ordered this afternoon. Pat
