Don't feel dumb Bertie, that's actually one of the more difficult links around here.

When I asked this same question, Mary shared these directions: "Tag your books, click on your tag on one of your books so that it opens a page with all of the tagged books and the highlight, copy and paste the URL in the message text box."

I think you're supposed to tag them with something peculiar to you...your intials or some nonsense word that would be a tag unique to you?

Now you need to find a book in your TBR pile and click on your tag.  That will take you to a page with all the books you tagged.  Once at that page the books will be listed 10 to a page.  If you have a lot of books then you may want to change the view to you can view 25, 50, or 100 books at one time.  Then highlight that page's URL and copy.  Go to the BB and type in a message.  Highlight the words that you want to become a link.  Then click on the link button.  The link button is on the right-hand side it looks like a green and blue small circle with silver links in front of it.  Click on that button and a new page will open up.  You will see a space for you to put in a website address.  Put in the URL that you copied earlier (without the http) and click ok.  Finish up the message like you normally do.
