I make  a link to my reminder list in the book bazaar , and I would like to delete the books that people have pm'ed me about ,but I dont knoe how to delete just the books that are being sent to me. Do I need to delete the whole link and redo it without the ones being sent?

They have been deleted from my reminder list.

Did you tag them to do the link?  I think that's the only way to get it to show your RL to everyone. If you tagged them, then you just need to delete the tag.

Lisa, the link stays valid as you add or delete books tagged to your RL.  Just delete the LisaRL tag from each book as you receive it to remove it from your list -- you can also tag new books to expand your list. Hope this helps  :)

Lisa, there's no reason you have to wait for them to get to you...unless you are afraid they'll be unpostable and you'll still want/need them. They'll still be on your RL list, removing the tags will only remove them from your link for others to look at.

Like Jodi said, there's no need to wait until a book arrives to untag it.  If a book arrives in less than satisfactory condition, you can just re-tag it.  Whoever came up with the whole tagging scheme is genius!
