To See All of Your Reviews:

  • My Books Ratings/Reviews are under My Lists:
    • To get there from My Account, click the My Lists tab and choose the link "Books Ratings/Reviews" at the top, in the yellow bar.
    • To get there from anywhere on the site: place your cursor over My Account in the main toolbar, and choose Books Ratings/Reviews from the menu that drops down.
  • To see how others have rated your reviews using the thumbs up/thumbs down, you can look at your list of reviews linked from your PBS Profile, if you have one.

If you want to remove a review entirely, simply find your review following any of the various options above and delete all text, then click "Submit My Review". Submitting the blank review will take it completely out of the database.

Nicole- when you go into the review from your profile page, click the actual book link, then go where you went to originally write the review- the down arrow button, then "Write Review". Your already written review should be there, just delete everything typed and it will erase any trace of the review from the page.

Here's the easiest way to find reviews you want to edit or delete:  Find yourself in the member directory, and go to your profile from there by clicking on your nickname.  When you have your profile up, click on the number representing the number of reviews you have written.  That will show you all the reviews so that you can pick out any that you want to delete or change.  From there, you click on the book title; then click edit review in the drop-down on the right side of the listing page.  

  If you have just a few books that you have rated and/or reviewed, this is probably easier:  You can also edit or delete your reviews from ratings/reviews tab from the "My Lists" tab, but that requires that you click on the "write review" button next to each and every title to see whether you have written a review on that title.

I think there must be a problem, because I can't get into mine either way. I know how to do them, I've done them, but neither way is working tonight. I get "Error on Page" down in the status bar, and nothing else happens. Just another thing messing up while they are fixing other glitches, I guess :)  Try again in a few days, Nicole.

WHEW!!  I just spent the last 2 hours editing all of my reviews.  A lot of them had book descriptions instead of reviews.  (a throw back to when we couldn't edit book info to add descriptions)  My wrists hurt!!  LOL

I just checked both ways to edit your reviews, and I still can't edit mine. Paige, send some of your mojo this way!
