 I hit #1 on a WL book today for which I had 3 versions on my WL.  Usually when I get offered a WL book, all versions of the book go on "hold" til the sender answers whether or not they can meet my RC.  However, my WL no longer shows the book that hit #1, deleted the 2nd version of the book, and only has on hold the 3rd version.  What's up?

Maybe the 2nd version is no longer WL (and now availalbe in the system to order) so it removed it to your RL.  I had that happen to me when I put my WL on hold for a cross country move. Several of my WL books had been removed to my RL because there was more than 1 copy in the system by the time I came off hold.

Mary - no books should be removed from your Wish List. If the book became available while one was on Hold, it should have simply requested the book when you removed the Hold.

Jeanne - what activity is showing on your My Account page? All of the books should be accounted for on the My Account tabs for offers/requests or your Wish List. Make sure to look at your private Wish List, not the public and sort by Title or something besides author since that sort can lose or misplace the book if the author isn't there and exactly matching.

thanks for the suggestions, so far haven't found anything but a "rejected offer" on the version I am #1 for (probably due to my no smoking RC) and it has already rolled over to a second sender.
