How come on my bookshelf it says a certain number posted, but on my main page that number is one less ?  There are none on hold or requested. Just curious.

How do you have your list sorted? If you have it sorted by author, and you have a book that has no author listed (say, a reference book), that book will not show on the list.

mine is doing that too! My shelf says 80 but my main page says 79. Weird! Mine are sorted by title, and I don't have any reference books. Not sure what could be causing it, but I bet someone will be along shortly that WILL know.

Yes,mine are sorted by Title. When I sort them according to author, it drops considerable of course.

Do you have any that are "on hold"?

if someone requests a book from you, there will be a little grey exclaimation point to the right of the book.  they have an hour for "buyer's remorse" to cancel the request before it comes to you.  at that point, it would still show up on your bookshelf but not your main page.


maybe that's it?
