(If this turns out to be a duplicate post, please forgive me.  I wrote a question and now I can't find it.  Sorry.)

Okay.  What is the easiest way to get a book title from my TBR list, get it posted, star rate it, and get it added to my BIR list?

Yes, I've already star rated all those books from last August and they are on my BIR list.  But I can't seem to find an easy way to do the above question.

When I receive a book from another member, a box pops up and asks me if I want the book added to my TBR list.  Seems to me the same thing should happen when I remove the book from my TBR list.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

(Hope this posts okay this time).

I can't find it either and I answered it!  Posting it is easy from any listing page .  marking it a BIR can be done on any page that stars appear and you can click on the "More options button" to add to your BIR.

What you can do it star rate the book on your TBR and then hit [Post This Book]. It should move the book to your Bookshelf and your BIR list at that time. It just has to be rated at the time you post it for it to go to both lists.

Melanie's way is the easiest by far.

Yes, Melanie's way is the easiest.  I just never saw that "rating option" on the posting page before.  Duh.  lol.  Thanks.

Its newer, I am not sure if it came about when they did all the changes to the BIR last year when we had to rate everything, or if its an update sometime after that. I found it by pure dumb luck :)  I used to do it Ruth's way.
