Wow!  Is anybody else experiencing an explosion of their wish list books being posted?  In the last 24 hours or so I have had 4 WL books offered to me! So exciting!!!! I had been noticing for some time that I was #1 on several of my WL books, just was surprised so many hit at once! Can't wait to receive these books!! :)

This weekend I got another "Similar to wish" offer and a real wl offer.  The real wish has been mailed and I'm super excited!  Used my last credit but the book is totally worth it!

I had one last August when I was offered 12 wishlist books in less than a week...I'd never seen anything like it! It's great when it happens. Personally I just got my first WL offer in about 6 weeks and sitting at #1 on about 6 or 7 books where the lines are moving regularly, so anticipating more WL books very soon.

12 in a week! Holy Tamole!!!  I'd love it but I'd have to buy credits if it happened to me!

I've had many wishes granted since the change, so much so that I'm actually out of credits and will have to buy more if any more WL offers come in! (That is NOT a complaint, BTW).

not mine, but the YA ones I have on my WL for my 19 yo daughter are coming in about one per week.

I'm #1 on >100 of the books on my WL and have more received an offer in a few weeks.  I'm happy somebody is!

I'm number 1 for a hundred or so books too but I doubt any will come up soon, they don't look like they are offered often.

I don't remember the last time I got a WL book offered to me.  A month, maybe more?  I'm lucky if I get one a month.

When I got home from walking Wolfie, I had another wl offer! I had to transfer a credit. I hope my RC is approved.

I'm also in the number one spot for over 100 titles and have little hope of seeing many of them soon. I received two WL books this month and three or four last month, so it's still good.

The cozies and more popular books come in quicker, but the history and zombie books tend to linger. I was over the moon when I received the new World Made by Hand novel a couple of days ago!

That's always great!  yes

I have gotten quite a few posted to me lately.... so many in fact that I'm running out of credits, haha.  I have some WL books to post though so I should be good.  I've just been busy with school so I haven't had time to worry about it yet.

Unbelievable!!!   I have been offered 6 wish listed books in the last few days.  I don't have any idea why, but I am very happy.
