Is there some way I can tell how many copies of a particular book have been posted by other members? For example, random example, say I looked up Stephen King's "Carrie" -- how could I tell how many people have this available. 

I have found books that I wanted but wasn't sure how urgent it was to snatch them up. Meaning, if there are two books I am interested in, I'd like to get the one that has only one copy available instead of the one with 12,000 -- know what I mean?

I'm sure it is somehow painfully obvious to find this out but thus far I have been too dim to discover it...

It takes a while to learn these things, so don't feel bad. When you search for a book, or see a book that you like, click the reminder button. Then go to your account,click on My Lists, click on Reminder List and each book that you put on there will tell how many copies are available for ordering. Hope this helps. The reminder list's purpose is also to place books there that you may want to order in the future.
