I don't want to list them all.  I know how to do that, and wouldn't.  It is for the bazaar.  I want to offer a deal on my audios and would like to pick just them off of my shelf to list in a post over there.  Is there a way other than individually listing them?

I think you have to type them out but then again I'm a computer nerd. That's what I do.

Ok off to check your shelf.  (audiobook junky here)

When I do that, I copy paste from my Bookshelf (the one in your account pages). Hope that helps.

If you go to "My Bookshelf" and then press the Print button, you'll get a nicely-formatted list of the books on your shelf.  Then just drag your mouse over the ones you want and copy/paste them.

Thanks all.  I want to print just the audios, not the whole shelf.  I couldn't edit that list you get from the print button.  But then, I didn't try to paste it in a post and then edit it.

As you've discovered, the Print list won't let you edit right there.  paste it into a post, then use the mouse to highlight what you want to delete.  At least it won't require that you retype everything...

Doing it right now, in wordpad, so I can work on it on and off, then post when finished.  Thanks for the suggestions.  Merry Christmas.
