i just discovered that i have 57 books in a "to be reposted" list.  i haven't read any of them.  how do i get them moved to the tbr file?  i feel like a dummy, but i can't seem to get it done--i don't want them posted.  thanks

there is a box to check when you mark a book recieved to add it to your TBR pile. If you don't plan on reposting them I would just remove them from the books to repost list and if they are not in your TBR pile already you will have to add them by ISBN #.

I think it automatically adds the books you've received from PBS to your repost list.  Are you sure they aren't also on your TBR list or have you not been checking the little box?  All the books I've received from PBS are on my repost list and I didn't put them there so I'm assuming it's automatic.  But I do check the Add to TBR pile box when I get them in so I can see if one goes on WL.

I don't add any of my books to my TBR pile, but do post from Books to Repost, as well as track which ones are on the WL from there.
