I have added books to my BIR list but can't figure out how to post them from there. Do I have to go through the Post process? Should I be putting them on my bookshelf first?

Add it to your TBR Pile.

Click "more options"

click "To Be Read Pile"

you can post from To Be Read Pile.

Wow!  There are a lot of lists.  I'm happy they simplified and streamlined all this on the DVD site.  Of course no "last posted" but I can deal with that.

Thanks. Seems kind of funky to be able to post from "to be read" ie not yet read but not from Books I've read. What's the DVD site?

I know!  I click on things to see what they do and how it works.  

The sister sites are SwapaDvd and SwapaCD.

Lynn,

Try This...Go to your Book Shelf. You will see in the yellow banner View: Change that to All books. All the book you have in your BIR should come up (unless you have deleted them). You will see the rating stars. Find the book/books you want to post on each page. Click on the box to the right of the book posting (it's a little box). At the top in the yellow banner you will see Actions, click Post. It will post the book/books to your shelf to be swapped. Then you can go to page 2 etc...

Mine either. I fixed most of my not being able to post books from the BIR page frustration by marking all my in-coming books "post to my bookshelf on hold"

Go to your BIR list. Click on any title that you want to post. Click on 'Post This Book'.

You have to rate the book before it shows on your BIR list

To simply things I think I will just use 3 lists. My wish list, Reminder list and TBR.  Actually I would like to get rid of  TBR but when I buy a wl book I like to put it on a list so I can post after I read it.  I think the TBR list is the most flexible option for me.
