Anyone know how to get a list of all books currently wished for within a specific genre?  The daily wishlist emails are useful, but I'd really like to be able to see a list of everything in a genre someone wants.  Or the top 50 by genre.  Either (both) would be helpful.  Or the top 50 hardcovers and the top 50 paperbacks.
To the owners: the top 50 lists are great.  Really.  I appreciate all the work everyone does to keep the site running and functional.  But as it is currently, the top 50 is an item of interest and not the useful tool it could be for traders. 
Thanks!

When you do an advanced search, select your genre... then when the results pop up, you can choose "all books" "only posted books" "only unposted books' or "wish listed books". tah dah!

I tried this, but it gives you all WL in the genre.  How do you get the top 50 or 100? In fiction I wish there was sub-genre for historical fiction.

I had submitted a suggestion to R&R for the Top 50 to be able to list by genre. It may show up some day.
