I just uploaded a book and it had no picture. I was able to easily get a picture. When I clicked on the link, there was the book picture. It still does not come up in my bookshelf. Also, when I searched under the author's name it did not appear. Yes, it is in the system (shows up under the title)... yes, it is fully posted.. yes, the author's name is spelled correctly. Just happened on these two discrepancies. Anything I should do?

When I click on your Bookshelf  button in your post, I see that all the books you posted today have a picture. Sometimes a book will show with no conver when you look at your own shelf, but it has one when other people look at it. You should upload your image using the link at the bottom of the screen, and then give it a few days. Once it's approved, that should solve the problem.

Which book is it that you are unable to find by author?

If you've posted a book that is on a wish list hold (has a gray exclamation mark icon on the right side on your bookshelf), and then you search by author in Posted books, you won't find it. You would have to search in Unposted books.

Actually all I had to do was post the question here. Everything that didn't happen is fine now. Must have been a small glitch. Was just curious since that was the only book that wouldn't go directly to the book description, no pic, etc... Just had to ask the question.

Oh, and it was the History of Horsemanship book.

Thanks for the answer anyway. :-)

Sometimes doing a ctrl refresh makes them show up after your image has been approved.

And then sometimes it doesn't...lol
