Is there anyway you can get a list of the people who do not have any books posted in the system????  I would like to reduce the amount of people on my friends list and it is a pain to click on each and everyone of them.

Nope! I don't think there's a way to do that. But if you go to your Friends tab in 'My Account' you can click on their Bookshelf without having to click on their profile first.

You may want to keep in mind that many people primarily post WL books so may not have a bookshelf often.  It might be worthwhile to double check their # of sent books if it's not sent to private.  You can benefit from gold key even if you're not one as friends can post WL books directly to you.

I was kind of wondering why you don't want anyone on your friends list that doesn't have any books posted?  They may have friended you so that they can refer to your bookshelf. Or they just post WL books, or they have a lot of credits built up and don't want to ship any right now.  They may have friended you because they have multiples of your WL books in their TBR.  There are members that never keep any books on their shelf.  They only post WL books and donate/purge non-WL books.

Mary,

 

 It's not that I don't want people with no books as friends, but when I first joined I wanted everyone to be a friend LOL.  So now I have a whole bunch of friends and was trying to get my list thinned out.  I really don't even look at my friends list that often but when I do it takes forever for it to load and then forever for me to look over it.  I noticed a lot of my friends are no longer even members. They have closed their accounts. So I just want to try to get rid of the ones that are no longer here.
