Is there a way to sort one's Wish List according to the number of wishers?  I'd like to see from low to high, so I know what books I am close to (hopefully) getting, without having to go through each one of almost 200 items.

No, the only way I know of to find where you are in line is to hover your pointer over the little exclamation point.  Good idea though.... you should send in feedback with your suggestion.

Ok, that's what I'll do. Thanks!

Some of us tag them with the number we are on the list when we put it on the WL.  I spend way too much time checking to see if I've moved up any.  since it is a tag everybody can see - I really make sure I delete it when I get the book.  Don't need that on there forever! ;D  I wish there was a place by the book on the list like on the TBR list that we could leave a note to ourselves so it wouldn't be a tag that annoys everyone else!

Ruth I have that little obsession, too.  I did print out a hard copy of the list and then a month later I compared the numbers. That was interesting, some of the numbers actually moved up quite a bit.

Anne, I, too, print out a hard copy, but I guess I am more obsessed than you are because I check and compare the numbers 2-3 times a week!  I cross out the old number and write in the new.  I like seeing the numbers go down!  I print out a new hard copy about once every 3 weeks.
