Well I'm sure it's me and not PBS but my bookshelf is empty so I must have clicked on an unknown button, lol! Before I list more books does anyone have any idea what stupid thing I did? Joanne, having a Monday even though it's Friday........................

Did you accidentally put yourself on vacation?

No but I probably should have, lol! Honestly I'm not a newbie but I haven't a clue what I did.

Nope, you are not on vacation (sorry!). It shows zero books when I try to look at your shelf not that your shelf is on hold.

Any chance you were deleteing a book or two? There is a button to "mark all" if you caught that one by accident and then "delete".....ut-oh...no more books. Still should have gotten  "are you sure you want to do this" message that way.

How many books should be on the shelf?

Not many Patti which was why I was checking what was there, I intended to upload some books this weekend anyway so now I have a clean slate... whether I wanted it or not.

The "mark all" button sounds like something I would do and I think it came up about putting it on a list and I JUST DIDN'T READ IT CAREFULLY.... which is something I'm always saying to my kids, lol!

Thanks!

I see 15 books there now. Did you just add some?

I was having probms accessing the site a few minutes ago. Maybe there was a glitch?

Oh, *groan* - I can't begin to imagine deleting my entire shelf and having to re-enter everything - although I have seen other people say they've accidentally done it.  I think if I did that I'd go lay down in the middle of the expressway...  That'd be enough to make you take a vacation:P
