Subject: Wishlist problem?

There is a book in the system, not a posted book, that I want to add to my wishlist. When I click the "WISH" button, the little screen pops up and says "This book has been added to your wishlist". BUT the book has NOT been added to my wishlist! I check my wishlist and the book is NOT there!

What can I do??

Try resorting your wishlist - some books won't show up if it is sorted by author, for example.

Try hitting the refresh button, too.  Sometimes the browser will pull up the old version of a page instead of the new one.

I did those things. Plus, I have the list sorted by dated, descending. I even tried "search"ing my wishlist for it and the book just isn't there.

Any other ideas??

Tracy--how did you solve it?  The answer might help someone else having the same problem.

Oddly enough, it solved itself. I had put the book on my WL back in December. When I "searched" my WL for it, to check my status, it didn't show up. I was baffled! So, I looked up the book and added it to my WL. Well, that didn't work at all. Apparently though, the book WAS on my WL the whole time. Since December. For some reason, the "search" feature on my WL will not pick it up. I "searched" using title, authors last name, authors first name, but no luck. Patty said she saw it on my list thugh. I found it by scrolling through and reading every title in my WL. SInce I had 199 books on my list that day, it took a while. *shrug* It was there, it just wouldn't show up using "search". Since I always check stuff on my WL using "search", it never occurred to me that it would malfunction. I guess it was just my bad, youknow? I didn't exhaust every option before posting the question.

I had one for a long time that began with a B but for whatever reason, when I had it searched alphabetically was always listed at the end. Who knows why.
