 Why can't books be posted from the book browser??  When I have a lot of books and I want to see if they are wish listed, I will go to the book browser and put in the ISBN.  If it is wish listed it will let me post from there. If it is not a wish list book you can't post it.

Yes, you can list a book from the book browser.

Bertie, I don't understand your difficulty because what you describe is exactly how I list my books -- enter the ISBN # into the search bar and when the info page for that book comes up, whether it is wishlisted or not, there is a "post this book" button to the left of the book image and when you click it, it takes you to the next step of posting a book. Am I missing something in your question?

Ok lets try again LOL.  When you check out the ISBN in the book browser in order to post a book you have to click on the book and go to the page that has the information about the book.  If it is a wish list book you can click post this book right in the browser, you don't have to go to any other pages/

The BOOK BROWSER is meant for ordering books, so you do have to click on the title to see the details and post from there.  You can't post directly from the search results if you use the BB.  If you want to post from the search results, then just use SEARCH ALL BOOKS.

I add books to my TBR by the ISBN on the book.  It'll show a W if it's WL.  I post them from there.  Then you can just post a few at a time or all of them.  You can also use your Reminder List. That won't show a W for WL but it'll show how many copies are in the system.  If it says 0 it's a safe bet that it's WL or will be ordered fairly quickly.
