I received a book today with a cleaved spine and marked it RWAP. I also am a journaler and thought a few days ago, hey I have spaces on my journal marking where I keep my books, so why don't I create a space called Unpostables and put those books in that place as a reminder to myself what books I'd better not repost.

When I went to add the latest book, I looked on my TBR pile and the book wasn't there (the book that was marked RWAP). Now am I correct in thinking that when we mark a book RWAP, it automatically takes it off our TBR piles (I always keep that box checked when marking a book received that i want the book added to my TBR pile)? I mean, I would think it should take it off--I think I just didn't ever notice it before.

At any rate, I'm thinking that marking books that are Received with a Problem as such  is an even better idea, because there is no way you could accidently repost it just by clicking on it on the TBR pile because it's not there. Unfortunately, I've had times that I discover the problem only when I am reading the book and I haven't marked it received with a problem and it's on my TBR list and I have to remember to go in and take it off manually.


Just thinking...

I prefer all of my books to be on my TBR list...unpostable or not and then I TAG them with my own tag...otherwise I might reorder that book and waste a credit.

if i remember right, when you click the RWAP button, you don't get to the 'add to TBR' screen.  so you have to manually add it to your TBR pile.
