My reminder list has always placed the books available to order at the top of the first page in alphabetical order. After the available books, the unavailable books are listed also in alphabetical order. Yesterday I needed to look at all of the books I had recently placed on the list, so I resorted my list by date. When I went to change it back to alphabetical order by title it just mixed together all the available and unavailable books. I love being able to check the available books on the first page each day to see if there were any changes. Now I have to scroll through pages and pages to see which books are available. Is there any way to fix this?!? Help!

I haven't been able to figure out a way to sort the list by available/not available either.  Sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't. I know it is frustrating.  I just gave up and now keep it sorted by author. At least this way if I am looking for a series of books I can see when the majority can be ordered (I don't like ordering out of order with a series because I don't want 2-10 sitting her if I can't get the first).

Someone else posted about this and said if they cleared cookies it went back to the previous sort.

Lauren, I am glad it worked!   I think it was Cathy A. (nickname Cathy) who posted that last time this issue came up in forums.  She is full of smart tips like those!   :)
