I listed 10 favorite books, but they are not the ones that are showing on my

profile.  ??

I see 10 "Favorite Books" in your profile, Adrienne.  Are they the wrong books?

If so, did you put them in there by title or by ISBN?

I've found that even when I put books on my profile by ISBN, books with the same title by a different author show up.

I've posted by ISBN, and the books don't stick.  The right one will be there;  then another book with the same title shows up in it's place.

I think they finally got this fixed--I noticed that when I updated the "books I'm reading" it's still actually showing the right ones when I went back later to check.

Where does the profile pull the books to populate the "Favorite Books" list?  I keep deleting mine but they keep coming back!

I think if you don't add anything yourself, it pulls them from your BIR (Books I've Read) list.

It's changing my books again.  Argh.  No, I do not want that book, I want the other with the same title!

If you can't get it to work by title, try using the ISBN, Emily.

Yuppers, mine is also fussy unless I use ISBN.

I used ISBN.  And it was still fussy.  Sticking now.

Me too Emily, it's a fun but not effortless feature, yet  smiley
