an option to see what the most requested book(s) are by members.  sometimes I am trolling a used bookstore and am able to pick up a book cheap (did that with 2 books already) to fill wish requests.  It could be the top 10 or 20 or whatever.  I know I can see how many people have requested a book but I would have to search by a specific ISBN and well...that just isn't easy when out and about!

Hopefully someone will tell me I can already do this and where to find it because lord knows I don't know where to look!

Under Community->Top 50, one of the tabs is "Wishes".

From the menu: Community->Top 50

You can sort in various ways from there.

Here is an edit to my original post

I'd like to see a club wish list that is for paperbacks only (separate paperback from hardback).  The most requested books on the list are mainly new hardbacks...or so it seems!

You can search Club Wish List by paperback only using the adanced search.

Choose Wish List from the database at the bottom.

Uncheck all boxes at the top except for paperback.

But hold on to your hat!  Results are 10,000 books.
