In this forum how do I divide a long text into paragraphs or breaks? I've tried several tricks, such as   BR>, and nothing works . But I see others so divided.

Hmm, I have been using Firefox. When I do the usual thing---that is , hit enter,--- it throws me back to the previous PBS index  page,"QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BOOK CLUB", and thereby eliminating what I've written so far, In other words, in FOXFIRE using ENTER is like hitting the BACK arrow. Oh, that only happens in this forum. Normally ENTER works fine to start a new paragraph.

I think ypu have accidentally written in the wrong thread but here's your answer. Under the search button, bring up "BOOK BROWSER". Start a search by using author or title or whatever BUT on the top seletion, under SEARCH TYPE, use the pull down menu to select: ALL BOOKS. Then when you click on UPDATE RESULTS it will bring up all the books that that author wrote even if nost iof them are not posted. You can then add whichever you want to your wish list.

You can also post or add the post to your TBR.  This will show you whether the system recognizes the book's ISBN.  If it does and has the information in the data base, then it will add the book to your TBR which you can click on to go to the book's listing page.  Once there you can click on "Wish" to put it into your WL.  If it doesn't recognize the ISBN then the information isn't in the data base.  But you can check it again in a little while to see if the data base went to get the information.  Many times this will happen.  If the information isn't in the Amazon data base, it will most likely not recognize the ISBN and until Amazon does get the information, it will not be possible to add it.
