One of the books on my wish list has 165 people wishing for it (and NO ONE posting it) i've been #31 on the list for months. It's the Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx. Have you seen a list longer than that? For what book?

For books that haven't been published yet, I have - the list for <i>Lover Enshrine</i>  is well over 300 at this point, I think. I've never seen one that bad for a book already out.

BTW, you might doublecheck to make sure there's not another version listed, with a smaller wait list. I've seen that happen a number of times - there'll be tons of people waiting on one copy, not realizing that there's a newer edition with a smaller list.

no such luck, it just came out a few months ago, so just the pricy hardcover is out

The newest Harry Potter had a huge WL when I looked a few weeks ago. I think it was in the 400's.

I also find it frustrating when you WL a book and you think "Great! I'm only #3"  and months later you're still #3.

I hate that too Jen.  I've been #1 on three books for AGES now!

Yeah, I've been waiting on Never Lie to a Lady and Prince of Fire for EVER.  I swear, I sometimes think I've moved backwards.

Particularly annoying, because I got the books that come AFTER both of them ages ago.

Water for Elephants has 1191 people for one paperback version and 566 for hardback.  I think I saw this at Walmart the other day.  Eventually there will be 1000 copies available in PBS and people will be begging for somone to order it.

D'OH!

It just hit me to follow my own advice - sure enough, I had wishlisted the HARDCOVER of Never Lie to a Lady! There are 38 copies available and I've been waiting for months. Grrr....

I am on several lists that are very long (new In Death series, new Dark Hunter books, new Anita Blake novel, etc).  Every once in a while I will just go buy a book that has a long list and post in the system when I am done.  I figure karma will kick in and I will move up on some lists:D
