Am I the only one who gets aggravated when I'm #25 on a wishlist, see that one wish has been granted and I'm now #26?  I know a lot of the reasons why this might happen but it drives me crazy!  Sometimes there have been two or three wishes granted and I still get further (farther?) away from getting the book.

Okay, I feel a teeny bit better now.

It's just because people ahead of you have had it on hold. Or ones granted before have gone lost or timed out. No reason to get angry. 

Personally I don't pay that much attention to my WL. I just have better things to do and books here to read while I wait.  I get them when I get them.  Constantly checking them just sounds like work to me.

Patience, Patience.

Just put the WL on Auto  and wait for the surprises.
