I want to print out a copy of all of the books I have received alphabetically and I can't figure out how to do it.  I get the resort part but it only prints a few pages instead of the whole list alphabetically.  I know I must be doing something wrong..help  It's 595 books I guess...

Why would you want to waste so much paper?  I just looked and I don't see a print option-probably beause the way it lists them it would just be too much to print.

I'm curious about why you'd want to do that too, but since there is no print option, you could always copy and paste the books into a Word or Excel document and print that.

OK..Thanks for answering my question.  I just wanted a list of the books I had read from here...I have a bad habit of not recognizing books I have read a few years ago  ( I use PBS for mostly True Crime books and they all look alike..red or black covers and similar names :) and I end up re-buying them at used book stores.  I thought a list would be nice.

I'm computer challenged and I was hoping there was a button where I could say alphabetize and print.

Nicki, you can print it from your Books I've Read list if you have star rated the books you have received here after reading them.

Thanks Cheryl..I haven't rated any and didn't know you could do it. ....a member since 2005 and a complete luzer in knowing about how things work around here :)

I'm computer challenged and I was hoping there was a button where I could say alphabetize and print.

If you make an Excel document list of the books, I believe you can have it automatically alphabetized and then print.

However, like Cheryl said, you can alphabetize and print from your Books I've Read (BIR) shelf. Mine are actually sorted alphabetically as well.

If you want to print where there isn't a print button option, you can always highlight everything you want to print, right click, and choose print from the drop down menu.

So there are several options. :)

I haven't rated any and didn't know you could do it.

You can rate the books on here by clicking on the stars beneath their title. Your rating shows up in yellow, the average rating in blue is what you see before you rate it.
