I like to browse someone's shelf when I order and see if there's anything else I want, especially on deals in the book bazaar. However, I like to read the reviews and once I click to order something it goes to a different view of their bookshel and the reviews aren't there..is there a way around this other than opening a new browser and searching for what I want to know?

You will need to access the members book list by clicking their nickname, this will bring up their profile and you can access their book list from there.  You will be able to get all the information available for each book there, what the book is about and the reviews.  You are correct that you can't get all this information after you click to order something from the other member, although sometimes a synopsis of the book will come up, but you will not get the reviews.  Hope this helps!

Also remember, if you click on the book description, and then order the book from there, the order will be placed with the person who is first in the FIFO line, and not the shelf of the member you were looking at.

If you are searching someones shelf for a book deal, I suggest you load the book descriptions in a second browser window. That way you can look at reviews and descriptions, but stay in that members shelf so the order goes to who you want it to.
