Couldn't find it on the site anywhere.

Can anyone tell me how to create a wish list ?

You need to search under "all books" and the title is Devil in THE white City.  Yes, the database is that picky....lol

Well that certainly explains why the title didn't pop up.  Thank you for pointing me in the right direction :)  Will try again.

Edited to add  - searched again and it's still not coming up.  Will continue to look for this one.

 I just typed  the title in the search area and it came up and is available to order. Try again!

It's actually called The Devil in the White City.

Whenever I can't get a book to pop up, I go to Amazon and get the ISB number and search it that way.  Usually works.

You can also search by author if you're having trouble getting the title to work. Or, go to advanced search - this works better for me than the keyword search sometimes.
