I'm trying to figure out how to post a book's title and author that links it to the PBS database.  I used two copy/paste functions, first copying the title link and second copying the author link.  Any other suggestion or any quicker way to do this?

Let me be more specific.

First I go to the author's page and copy the title link.  See the yellow high-light area in this Link to Author Page:

>> I add one space after the first link was pasted.

Next I go the the title page and copy the author link.  See the yellow high-light area in this Link to Title Page:

The results of the first two steps produce this (complete with links to the PBS database):

All this copy/pasting is tedious.  I'm wondering if someone has a magic shortcut that uses fewer steps?

Add it to you reminder list or find it on your WL /bookshelf and just copy it from there. It will look like this:)
