Looked, not sure I looked in the right place. Is there a way to change what I see when I click on "Home"? It shows one of my WL books that is available in the Market Place, and it's driving me nuts. Stupid, I know, but I have no plans to order anything from the Market Place, and if anything it would be nice to see something different when I sign on.

TIA ~ Gail

It used to show me random books. Now all it shows me are books that are on my WL. I find it a little annoying, since I have no plans to actually purchase them and I enjoyed seeing random book suggestions. That's exactly how some of those books got on my WL in the first place. Well, that's capitalism for you.

About a week ago I looked throughout the site for information on how to eliminate those "Come On" offers from my homepage.  Never found any info, so I'm guessing there is no way to do it.  Although its annoying....I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

I just bypass my home page entirely. It's not a feature I use.

I just use my own account page as the opening page. Go to your account page, and then bookmark that page. Delete other bookmarks to PBS. That way I don't see the PBS opening page at all, just use the bookmark to go right to my own page. At home where I use Firefox, I have that page set on my speed dial and use that.

I don't think there is a way to change it, but if you don't like it use the Feedback feature to submit the suggestion to the PBS Team for the option to change what it shows.  If enough people turn in feedback then a change like that might eventually happen.
