Has anyone ever had their wishlist books disappear? Is there a time limit you can be on a wishlist? I'm guessing if I add the book, I will go back to the back of the line, right?

you mean your whole wl is gone, or just one book?  If it's just one book did you check your account homepage to see if it's been offered to you?

Also, did you change how you sorted your wishlist? If you sort by author, some books don't have an author listed (or have multiple authors) and thus disappear from view when you sort them that way--but they are there. Just try re-sorting by title again.

Your WL is definitely gone. I would contact the site leaders before doing anything, maybe they could do something to restore it. Otherwise it looks like you will need to rebuild it. If you added a book to your WL that was already on it, you don't move in line, but with your WL blank right now, it might be better to have them try to recover it without messing with it.

The reminder button will remove books from your WL and put it on your reminder list. You didn't happen to hit the reminder button on all of them  did you?

Well, I only had one on there but no, I hadn't looked at my WL in a while or hit a button. It's never been offered to me. It's just gone. I think I will contact the site and see if they can put me back in line. Thanks!

Did you get an offer for the book that you didn't respond to? If someone posts the book and you're #1 in line, you'd be offered the book. You have 48 to respond and if you don't, your book gets removed and you lose your place in line if you re-add it. You can check by going to Club Communications, which shows a record of all e-mail sent by PBS to your e-mail account.

How often do you log on to your PBS account?  I was thinking the same thing as Cheryl that maybe you just missed the WL offer.  How many people are in line for the book?

I am on here several times a day. I was #243 in line last time I checked. I can't find any trace of record of communication from the club, and I checked my transaction archive. There is nothing there.

Once, I tried to put a wish list book on my reminder list also and it deleted it from my wish list.  I removed it from my reminder list and put it back on the wish list and I got moved back to the end of the wish list.....I apparently didn't see the warning that I would be removed from the wish list (if there was one).  Hope this helps.....boNk
