I'm not very computer literate so maybe someone here can help me figure this out.
When I look at posts in the BB, members have multiple books listed that I can click on and get the info on that book.
When I try to do the same, I can get one link in there, but when I leave the page to go back to my shelf to copy the next book's info, my posting in-progress is blank and I have to start over.
For now, what I do is copy the first book's link and post it, then get the next book's info and have to click edit to get the next book's info in the same post. I figured there must be a better way to do this.
I've tried using the link icon at the top but I haven't had luck with that either.
Any help with this appreciated!

1. Type the names of the books you want to link.
2. Highlight a book. Press the link icon (above the message edit area, on the right - a few links of a chain in front of a globe). A popup comes up. Paste the link in there.
3. Repeat step 2 for each book.
Rick, thanks for responding but I must still be doing something wrong.
I just tried what you said in a thread I started in the BB (2 for 1 - Cindy Adams' books).
First I wrote the message. Then I highlighted the first title - clicked the link icon and copied the title in the url space. That makes the title live in the post but when I click on it after posting, I'm just redirected back to my message. How do I get the URL of the book by just highlighting the title in the message as I'm writing?
Sorry to be so dense about all this. :(
Yes it does. Guess I'll have to pull out my computer book and figure out how to do that too.
Ok, I think I've got this working -once I figured out how to keep both pages open, I managed to post a thread about my Bill Cosby books in the BB and I got all the information pasted in there the first time.
Thanks for the help, Leslie.

Yuppers, like Leslie I have excellent success by opening several tabs when posting links
This discussion thread also has some interesting pointers.
