Hi, I have about forty books that I have received from deals that didn't go into my "tbr" file and I would like to know the easiest way to get them into my "tbr" file.  Any suggestions. Also would someone please define the following initials:  RC,  ARC, WRAP, AND DC (or is there a place you can go for definitions?)   Thank you for your help.  Jack

Hi, Beth, thanks for the tip.  That suggestion will work great for me.  Funny how you can look at something and yet not see it.  Thanks again, Jack

Jack - I'm pretty new, but the only way I've found to add books to my TBR pile if they weren't there already was to click the "Add to TBR" field in the yellow bar on top of your TBR list.  I haven't found a way to add multiples like you can add to your bookshelf.  If someone else knows I would love to have the info too, since I just got a bunch of books from a book fair, and I try and organize my reading by what's wishlisted by others.

I think I can help with the acronyms. This is what I've picked up from the forums:

RC- Requester's Conditions

ARC - Advanced Reader's Copy

WRAP might be RWAP- Received With a Problem

DC - Delivery Confirmation

I think there's a post somewhere or maybe in the Help Directory with other common acronyms.

Also you can add books to your TBR list by isbn - go to the book's main page and click the "more options" button, then click the "TBR Pile" option.  Your book will be added.

I just type in ISBN and add it to my TBR.  I don't think there's anyother way to do it unless you have them in another computer program you can import.  Other than searchign each one by title. That might be best if you want to add every version to your TBR.  I was doing that for awhile but then it got confusing as I'd forget to delete the other versions.
