Subject: Wish List emails?

I know I used to receive emails when a book I have wishlisted became available. But, toay wen I logged into my PBS account I noticed that I had two wishlist books sitting there to be accepted (or declined) yet, I had not received an email advising me. How can I change this so I do receive email notifications when a wishisted book is available to me.  Obviously, I do not have my wishlist set to auto -request.


Also, when I accepted those wishlisted requests I did not get the option as to wherther to apply my RC. Is there a way to do this (and, was my RC applied to these requests.

Thankyou, I have read through the help doc's, but, cannot see this info threre (not saying it isn't there - just I couldn't see it LOL).

Answering my own post - it seems timing can really be coincidental - BOTh those wishlisted books were posted within a three minute period of me logging out of my email address an logging into pbs - wow. So, the notification emails were sent after all.

My question on RC's still remains.

That's great that you are getting two wishlisted books! I love it when that happens, don't you? As far as your RC's go, yes they show up on your WL requests.That's the only time that you don't have the option to turn them off.

If you want your RC off for a wish list book,  you must go to your settings and turn it off before accepting the request.

Thanks Connie & Emily.  Good to know how to deal with my RC for wishlists.

Yes, I was excited to get two wish-listed books - and, so close together. One of them I've been No. 1 since Oct 2008.
