I don't know if this question has been asked before, but what do the red links for the books mean ?

On an author's bibliography page? They mean the book is not available in the system.

They also appear on the bottom of the book page, showing other editions.  Green are available to order, red to wishlist.

What about books posted on swap threads or profile pages?  Most have a blue link, but occassionally see a red link.  Is it a browser difference or something else?

Thanks everyone for the answers.  I thought maybe under 100 books, but I have seen the red links with over a hundred books also.

Like mine below? It just means I copied from the author page. You can pick up the green links there too. The blue links mean you got it from the book's actual page. So, it really just depends on what page you picked up the lnk from.
