Does anyone know if there is a way to tell what DATE a book was added to your TBR?

This would be for books that I added to my TBR myself.    I've been a member since late 2005, and listed my entire TBR here shortly after joining.    I can easily date books that were added to my TBR because I ordered them through PBS through the Transaction Archive.     But what about those that I got elsewhere and added to my TBR manually?

Any ideas? The PBS system obviously keeps track of this information, because you can sort your TBR by date.   But I can't find any more info than that.

Nope - I would send a note to the team and ask if it is possible to add the date to the display.  That may actually be an easy bit of programming.

In the meantime you could add a note to the books as you put them on your TBR.

Actually, you can sort the whole list by the date you added the book. Going both directions, new or old first. This is using the resort button on the top of the list.

You can sort it, but it doesn't show the actual date added.

Thanks for the feedback.  Glad to know that I wasn't just being stupid and the date was on the page and staring at me LOL.   Guess I'll send a note to PBS!
