When I look at the Club wish list, to see if I have any of the books,  I see a list of some 10,000 books on some 100 pages.  There is no indication (unless I'm missing it) of the order in which these are listed.  It's obviously not date of publication, title or author (all of which seem random), so I can only suppose they are listed by date of appearance on wish list.  Does anybody know?

You can do a search a few different ways. 

You can either search by title (click the corresponding letter), search by genre or plug in the isbn #, title or author. 

You can also look at the most wishlisted books under the Top 50s ... I think that's where it's at. I haven't been there in awhile.

If you want to know if the book you're holding is the edition wanted, type in the ISBN. Then make sure the binding matches.

There can be a lot of the same title WL'd, but you won't get any WL orders unless the ISBN matches, or those who want any copy are emailed that a copy of the same title as on their WL has been posted.

I find it's just easier and faster to always use the ISBN when you can.

Just keep an eye to make sure it's not listed with the wrong binding.
