For a couple of months I have been trying to add another 2 books to my WL.  I currently have 198 books posted to it (some are being held so you won't see them if you click onto my WL).  When I try to add those last 2 books I get the dreaded popup that says "The book was not added to your WL.  To add this book to your Wish List you will need to remove another book as we limit the Wish List to 200 books per member."

Now, last time I took math, 198 was less than 200 and I should be able to add them.  What gives??

Do you have your WL sorted by author? If you have a book or two without authors they won't show up. If you sort by title, they'll show up. I just looked at your WL. 158 show up, but when I sorted by author, it lists 157. That's likely your issue.

Is your WL sorted by title? If you have it sorted by author, you may have more books on it than you realize. Try going to your WL and changing the sort method and see what happens.

Thanks ladies!!  That is the problem.  I usually sort by author since then I can see which authors books I'm missing.  Thank you sooooo much for the help.  :P
