I was wondering if anyone else would like to see a change made on this.  I find it a  pain when I get notified that I'm getting a book and I always look at the person's shelf to see if I can order something else that they have but, our TAGS don't show up so I have to flip between their bookshelf and the main search engine to look up the books I'm interested in because I can't see my tags.  Does anyone else find this a problem?  I was thinking of making a suggestion for a change but, wanted to make sure it wasn't just me that found this an issue.

I'm actually way too new to understand what you're talking about - but had a related problem this morning, I also look to see if there's anything else I want to order, and for the first time yesterday I did - well the sender cancelled my order, but the order for both books was put through to two new people, I feel like it should have asked if I still wanted both books, since I really only added the second one since it was coming from the same person and thought it would be a little "perk" for them (which clearly they didn't care about since they didn't accept it, ha!  teach me to be nice.)

I think that would be a great change.  Use the feedback link to send in your suggestion - R&R are very good about taking things into consideration.

I have the same problem looking at a person's shelf thru the BoB system. My solution is to click the PM button for the person, then go to their shelf from their profile. This gives me the best view of their shelf, instead of the "condensed version" which is totall annoying. I can't see thepics as well, and as you said, the tags are missing. I open this in a new window, and when I find a book I want, I go back to the original condensed window and add the book. Yep, a bit annoying, but I've been doing it ever since I've been a boxer, so it's almost second nature to me :)

I haven't gotten into the tag thing, but now that I see how you're suggesting they be used, I'm on that the next chance I get.  Great suggestion!!

Did they just change this for the BOB section? Because the last time I had a BOB offer I saw my RL tags when I looked at their books.

No, Mary, I went to look, and the tags are actually there, IF you click the details for the book :(  Oh, well, since I always use the PM button, to go directly to their shelf, since I prefer to be able to see the images that are available, it doesn't matter to me whether they are there or not.
