I've been searching around for different books and have noticed a few times that there has not been an option to put a book on my wish list when it isn't available to request? Why does this happen?

Alysia, I can't think of why that would happen.  If it's not available to request, you should get the +wish button.  Can you give us an ISBN as an example?

There's no WL button because the book is available to order now. If you don't want to (or don't have credits) now you can put it on your reminder list.  There's probably a few hundred copies of that book available. 

The WL is only for books that aren't in the system to order already.

There are 575 copies of that ISBN in the system ready to be ordered.

OHHHHHHHH.

I am sorry. I am new to PBS. I get it now. I thought it meant order from amazon or order to buy the book.

 

Thanks so much guys! :)

Yep, and one of them is mine. lol

Those buttons confused me at first too. They've been changed recently and I thought the same thing.
