I haven't had a wish granted in a long time and today I had 4 granted within hours of each other.  Strange, huh?

Monica, I also got four WListed books today.  Doing the happy dance.

Yeah, it's a weird week!  The only WL books I have been granted in the last 6 months were from this forum (in the "Is this on your WL" thread), but in the last 3 days I've had 2 come up in the FIFO system.  Both are books (non-romance ones) that have been on my WL for close to a year, so I'm really happy!  One is on its way, but from Hawaii, so I know it will take longer than usual, and the other is still pending request.  I have never understood why anyone would post a book and then never look at their account again...but it has happened to me more than once, so I'm not getting my hopes up too terribly high on this one.  It is odd to have multiple WL books come up so close together though- especially ones that have been WLed for so long!

I had 3 come via FIFO today and another late last week.  It is weird, but, it does seem to come in waves.  NO pun intended!   LOL   :-)

I got a WL book granted FIFO today that I've been waiting for since the day I joined, Sept. 15, 2005!  It must be something in the water!

Wishlist books always come in packs -- I swear they do!  I never need to have just one credit, it's more like none....none....still none....and then five all at once.  :P

The last two books I posted were not only wishlisted, but I had other books the same people had wishlisted too. So the good luck is going in both directions.

Leslie -- that is so true.  I have never understood that one either.  But I have learned to be more patient on PBS and realize that everyone is under different circumstances.  Like a few months ago I had a few outstanding requests that the people werent responding to and I was getting mad and threatening to cancel the order.  But then someone on this forum said that there were horrific storms in the mid-west and flooding and people with no electricity and here I was stomping my foot in the sunshine and wondering why no one was on their computer :)

I had one book on my wishlist (The Lady's Tutor by Schone) for like 3 months so I decided to buy it used at Half and exactly a day after I placed my order, somebody granted it to me FIFO. I was so mad! (the book cost me like $10 used!)

Now, there are some other books (some old ones by Balogh) where I haven't moved even 1 place since I started. I guess I should have hope since you got your book Alexis. :)

I haven't even budged in my wishlist lines, but I did pick a few books that aren't very popular! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed and hope that I have a huge wishlist happy day! :)
