I deleted all the books on hold on my bookshelf, since I don't usually repost books.  Now it keeps telling me I have no books on my bookshelf!  I know I didn't accidentally delete them all because I can still get to my booklist from my profile.  Any idea how to fix this?

not sure... by maybe logging out and restarting your computer might clear up any funny business that is being held in memory?

This seems to be a common problem- there is another thread on this page called "Where did my bookshelf go?" which addresses it.  There are a couple of solutions suggested there, so you might try those- otherwise, it sounds like this has been submitted as a technical issue and is being worked on.  Hope this helps.

You need to make sure you go back to "All Books" instead of "Books on Hold" (which will now be empty). At least that's a possible answer.

OK now I did the same thing as you and i can't get that view back either!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a temporary answer: Go t your bookshelf then look at your Address www. paperback blah blah and it will end with "s=h" now change it to "s= " or "s=p" and you'll see it come back.

I'm seeing 140 books on your bookshelf.

Thanks for the help.  Now when I look it's just fine.  Temporary error, I guess.

It does that if you've deleted all your To Be Posted books and it's still on that sort.  You simply need to resort to show the books on your shelf.
