I've noticed on my bookshelf that the "Order Book" button is not available on all of my bookshelf book records. This includes several books I've posted yesterday as well as books that have been in my account for several months.

I logged out of my account to try searching the books in the system (as an outside person) and the book record came up for public viewing but still didn't offer the public option for the "Order Book" button. Only to order the book new or from Amazon buttons.

I  choose a few books to delete from my shelf and reposted them in case there was a glitch in the system. Still no "Order Book" button. My account is not on vacation hold. Now I am completely stumped. Would appreciate any advice to bring back my "Order Book" button. Thank you! Tara :)

Give me an example or two and I'll check your list.

Thanks, Whitney!

Here are two example links from my bookshelf:

When I look at your list, the Order This Book button DOES appear for those books.

Thank you for confirming it on your end! I appreciate it!

I still don't see it at my end. There are several copies of "Another Thing To Fall" by Laura Lippman and the copy I have with the IBSN number still has a record that doesn't have the "Order Book" button. Weird.

Main page listing:

Single record:

If it's coming up on your end and people can order this only copy, great! I'm glad to know people can still order my books! Tara :)

If you are looking on your own bookshelf, the order button will not be there because you can't order from yourself.
