Hi Everyone,

I started going through my BIR and TBR piles on paperbackswap this weekend to sort of clean them up and organize them. And i notice that there were books on my BIR pile that i had never read that I never took off my TBR pile but that had been removed for me.  Has anyone else had this problem?

If you rate a book by clicking on the stars, that adds it to your BIR list. I'm not sure if it also moves it off your TBR pile though.

If you post a book, it will automatically be removed from your TBR list. That is the most common way I "accidentally" remove a book from my TBR, by posting duplicates.

The only way for books to get on your BIR list is to star rate it, so if books are on there then somehow along the line you star rated it. You can send in Feedback if you don't think you've ever clicked on the stars for those books, the Team can look at them and determine if it is a glitch or tell you when you rated the book.
