Amazon wishlist setting to keep items on the list when they're purchased?

Is there a setting for Amazon Wishlists to keep items on the list after they're purchased?

I keep a list of good kids books so whenever a birthday rolls around I can get them easily. The problem is when I order them I have to remember to re-add them back to the wishlist.

I seem to remember a setting that determines whether or not they're removed from the wishlist when you purchase them, but I can't find it in all the account settings.

Anyone know if it's still possible?

On my wishlist, at the top in the sort area on the right, there's a drop-down for "Show" that has "Unpurchased", "Purchased", and "All" as choices. Does that work?

Yes! Thanks. I didn't even see that because the font was so small. I thought they used to have "keep on list" option, but I guess they moved to the purchased/unpurchased/all format, or maybe I'm remembering incorrectly.

You could also change the number requested to 100 or so. Every time you purchase an item, one would get ticked off, but there would still be the other 93 left on the list.

If you were to ask Amazon, I think they would tell you this is what their Listmania lists are for. (I have never made/used one, and I am sure they are not as readily accessible as the Wishlist button, but just putting it out there as an option)

Another possibility is to create another, private wishlist. This is where I put things that I want to keep a record of rather than have people buy for me.
