What's the trick to reordering a book list?  I have a list of unpostables I can send out in the Damaged Books Box.  I'm trying to move some newly added books to the top.  I've tried typing in the position I want it in and hitting move.  Either nothing happens or pit puts it some other random spot.  I hit the up arrow to move it up a few spots, hit move and it moves the book further down the list instead of up.

Is this a glitch or am I doing something wrong?

Are you hitting "save these books" after you change the order?

No because it wasn't putting them where I wanted them.  If I hit save will the list look right out of the editing box?  I didn't bother hitting save because it was putting them in completely wrong spots.

Go to the edit option first.  Move either by inserting a number, or using the arrows.  Then the Move button.  Then Save. 

Tested mine, it's working for me.

I give up I'm just going to start a new list.  It'll only move 1 book at a time for me and then it's hit or miss hwen I hit the save button if it put it where I wanted it or in some oddball place.

It seems to work on and off with me.  I do what Emily suggested, and sometimes it reorders and sometimes it just goes back to where it was.  Frustrating, but there you go.

So now I'm creating a new list.  It's only giving me hardcovers and audiobooks  even though I have every binding checked.  If a book is only available in paperback then it tells me it can't find it or it brings up similar titles unless I put the ISBN into the search box.  I'm workign from a Tag I made (and want to delete) so the ISBN doesn't show on my tag list.

I'm trying to clean up some of my personal tags and move them to Booklists. But the lists aren't cooperating with me.

ETA: when I add a book to thelist using the More Options button-it puts me back on the home page and I have to bring up the Tagged list again.
