How do I remove books I no longer have from my bookshelf?

Go to the "My Bookshelf" page, put a check mark in the little box on the far right of the book you want to remove and then hit delete in the yellow bar at the top of the page.  I think it then asks you if you're sure you want to remove the checked book.  If you are sure you checked the right book, hit yes.

You may remove more than one book at a time.  The action buttons are at the top and bottom of each page.

There is also an option to print out the list. I like to do a check off list every now and then.

Please note if you sort the list by authors, then books without author data will be hidden.

Good to know! I only printed out this list once and did go by author and was missing some. Now I know why! Thank you!

Oh. Another detail. Do NOT use the individual book hold. Only use the Vacation Hold. The single book hold puts your book at the end of the FIFO list. Which is great for books you are deleting. But really sucks for books that you are keeping on your shelf.
