Everytime I try to post a certain book it does show up in the "Browse Today".  Instead it goes to the proper genre and instead of showing "Order this Book", it says" Mail to a Friend".  But there's no request and I don't have any friends listed.  What's happening.

Wayne, you will not see an Order This Book button on a book you have posted. This is a feature that is built in to the site so you dont order your own book.

Well, Who would order their own book?, you ask. Plenty of people, hence the reason why they added this to the programming.

You can see the books you have posted on the site for swapping by going to your Bookshelf tab on your account page.

The Mail to a Friend option isn't actually to mail to PBS Friends, it is used to mail books you have on your PBS Bookshelf to non-PBS members. Anytime you see that option, that book is on your Bookshelf.
