Could someone clarify something for me ? When a book on my wish list comes available, do I actually get an email to my personal email addy or does it show up on PBS somewhere, like when someone requests from me?

You will get an email, unless you've changed your PBS settings not to.  Edited to add - It will also show up on the main page of your PBS account.

I have my personal settings set to notify me via email.  Check your settings and decide how you want it done.  Of course, as mentioned above, if you go to your account it will be the first thing you see.

I don't know if anyone else has had this problem with a book on their  Wishlist.:   I was number one for "Friends, Lovers, Chocolates" for quite a few weeks, and on noticing today that I was STILL in the same position, I decided to request it again.   THEN, suddenly it became available.... 

Does anyone know the reason for this, as this is not the first time this has happened to me?

Thanks for any advice !

You may not have requested the same version that you had on your WL. There could be more than one paperback or hardback version.  I see books that are WL all the time in a MMP version when there are other MMP versions readily available just with a Different ISBN. 

(that was a good book BTW.  I love Alexander McCall Smith.  I have The Right Attitude to Rain on CD in the to be listened to pile)
