Hello everyone!

I was just wondering if there was anyway to tell where you were on the wish list for a particular book?  If i'm number 303, I might as well see if I can find it else where.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Also...I was wondering if anyone knew how to see what the top 20 or so books on everyone's wish list are.  (I think I asked this already but I think I am loosing my mind! UGH!).

Happy Reading!

Each wishlist book entry on the list should have a little gray circle with an "!" in it -- hover the cursor over it and your place in line for that ISBN will appear!

Yes, just go to your wish list and point to the gray exclamation mark.

Thank you so much!  It was driving me crazy!

As you can see from my "wish list" I have a "wish list" problem.  Is there a support group for this website?  :-)

For the second part of your question, go to the community drop down menu at the top of the page and select top 50. It has the top wishes, books requested, and other fun info.

I wouldn't necessarily give up on getting books that you are 300th in line for--it really depends on the book! Sometimes those really popular books have huge wishlist lines, but they move quickly because so many folks buy them for themselves and then post them when they're done. The ones that are problematic are the ones where you are fourth in line and have been in the same position for a year...or even two years! Those are the ones I begin to despair of ever getting, and those are the first ones I would delete from my list if I needed to make more room on it.

And no...there is no support group if you want to cut down on your book acquiring/wish listing, etc...we are all in the same addicted boat but we've learned to revel in it and love it...we don't want to quit! LOL
