Use the search feature and, over to the left side, use the drop-down box to limit to "posted" items -- that will bring up only items available for ordering immediately.

Also, you can set the banner on the home page to only show genres you are interested in.  I think that is under Settings.

"Use the search feature and, over to the left side, use the drop-down box to limit to "posted" items -- that will bring up only items available for ordering immediately."

The option to limit your search to "posted" items is available using Advanced Search. Place your cursor over the search tab near the top of any PBS page and and select Advanced Search from the drop down. You can also select Books Posted Today. In addition, the Advanced Search includes a number of options to narrow your search. Alternatively, clicking on the Search tab will show these two search options near the top of the page.

If you like browsing in addition to searching for specific books, the carousels on your Home page show recently posted books. You can select which genres you want to display and browse.
