Is there a feature on PBS where you can just save your favorite authors or add a new favorite? That way you could just go to your settings for that feature and  click on preset names to see what is available without always doing a search? if this isnt a feature who could it be suggested to?

Thanks,

Sherry

As far as I know, there is no way to do that. You could save a search though with the author's name. I have about a dozen saved searches for authors, genres, pub dates etc.

To contact PBS use the feedback link: http://www.paperbackswap.com/contact_us/index.php

Janelle,

A saved search sounds like a partial solution, but you would still need one for each author. I second Sherry's request -- we should request this feature from TPTB.

I go through my reminder list.  Put one book on it and then click on the author.

That is what I would suggest also:  do your search, and save it, and you can go back to it at any time very easily.  Personally, I don't search because I find so many new authors and books that a specific search would block out!  Just MHO.  But if that is what you want, it should be easy to do.   :)  D.
