Hi!

Although the "my account" screen claims I have 365 books posted, the "my bookshelf" screen claims I only have 344. What happened with the 21 missing books?

Thanks for your help.

One thing it could be, is the sorting on your bookshelf. If you have your bookshelf sorted by Author, books without an author "disappear" from the "My Bookshelf" view of your boookshelf. (I just tried it). So, try going to "My Bookshelf" and go to "Resort" and sort your books by Title. See if the totals change.

If you click the Download button to download the contents of your bookshelf into a Excel spreadsheet it shows 365 rows with the first row for titles that means 364.

You were right; that solved the problem.  Thank you for your prompt reply.

It's a bit vexing, though, since I'd love to be able to sort & search by author.  When I'm looking through other member's lists, searching by title is cumbersome.  Still, books find the folks meant to have them, something this site facilitates admirably.
