The last few times I have posted books into the system they have not shown up on the 'books posted today" list.  They have just been added to my bookshelf.  Why is this?

it takes a little while for them to show in the system on the books posted today list.

The time between posting a book and it appearing in the  Books Posted Today seems to be running anywhere between 15 - 30 minutes, possibly depending on site traffic.

Has anyone else noticed that it has not updated since 9:14 this morning.  I wonder where all the books that have been posted today are. :)

Ever since the major glitch a couple of weeks ago, we've been unable to upload any images - perhaps they had to take the 'posted today' site down in order to do some repairs ??

eta:  posted books are going onto bookshelves; I just posted one and it shows just as it should - Only NOT in Books Posted Today..

Hopefully this will be fixed soon ... I don't think the search engine is registering anything added after 9:14 A.M. either ...

Go to the bottom of any page and check out "Under the Hood". Updated every 15 seconds & shows books posted, mailed, received. Kinda cool.

I think the time frame must vary - perhaps with how many books you post? I just posted an Evanovich book a couple days ago and it popped right on the "books posted today" thingy. Same with a couple of others books I've posted in the last several days but I know others have complained about theirs not showing up.
