I signed up to receive the Daily Wish List Digest.  What is the purpose of it?  What do you use it for?  Some of the books say "Posted on: date" and some do not.... what does that mean?

I use it to see what books other people are putting on their WL.  Then I can add them to mine if I like them.

I think people use that to see if someone's WL a book that they have but haven't posted yet. Of if it's a book they've been wanting to read they might get it, read and then post it knowing it's on someone's WL.

The wish list isn't working properly right now.  It used to be that you got a look at books that others wanted and were not yet in the system. That lead me to finding some great stuff to add to my wishlist.  Now it seems to just be a listing of every book posted into the system or wished for that day.

I use it to find out about books I might not have heard of...if other people are putting it on their wish lists...I might want it too!
