Thanks for the info, MOnica. I'll delete them from the Wish List. I think Chela reads these posts, so I guess she'll find out that they're already in the collection. I guess I'd better start checking both the collection and the BOoks in Process list. I do sometimes when there aren't a lot of books requested but I keep thinking that people know, after all the reminders that I and others have posted, and the notice I've put at the top of the Wish List, that they should check before requesting books. I've just enlarged the font of that opening paragraph on the wish list. Will it make a difference to blind people? Does enlarged font sound louder or "look" different in braille?
