I have seen several people link to their reminder list in Book Bazaar.  I have several books on my list that I would like to see if I can get deals on (mostly romance novels), and would like to post my list on Book Bazaar.  How do I do this?  Thanks!

I *think* you can copy the url when you are in your reminder list and paste it in a message.  I'm not 100% positive b/c I don't know if the url is looking at your account and will ask the person to log in which they can't do. 

I'm trying mine here - let me know if you can see my reminders: http://www.paperbackswap.com/members/my_lists/reminder_list.php

That took me to my reminder list, but thanks for trying.  Maybe I'll PM someone who has successfully done it. 

Here's an attempt... http://www.paperbackswap.com/tags/index.php?type_id=1&tag_id=148169

Thanks Lynne, that totally worked.  Maybe now I'll be able to get some deals on these books.

As far as I know, the only was that you can do this is to tag all of the books on your reminder list, then link to that tag.

RLs are not public, so I don't think you can.

The successful ones I've seen in the bazaar have done as Lynne suggested--made a unique tag & tagged all the RL books then linked to that tag.

There is a little imp in me (who so far I've kept locked up) who has the urge to tag a bunch of other books for them!

I've seen a couple signatures on here that say something like: My RL book tag is xxxxx.  If you've got more than one and want to make a deal-pm me.  I've been tempted to do that. I had most of my RL books tagged only and not actually on my list. But I removed the tags when people were making a big stink about personal tags and they gave people the power to remove inappropriate tags.  I don't know if I want to go through the trouble of tagging them again.  On the other hand-I don't really want them to end up combined with my WL either when they finally do that.  So maybe I will retag them.

I put mine in my notebook entries, while I also have WL items there, all my RL books are in there. Just a thought, as you can link to your notebook.
