Has anyone ever posted a book, then searched for it as if you wanted to order it, and it doesn't show up?  I've sent a message to the librarian, but am curious if anyone else has tried this.  I verified it's posted as available on my bookshelf, I typed the name exactly as it shows up on my bookshelf, but it doesn't appear in posted books.  If anyone wants to see if it comes up for them, it's "The Blood of Flowers" by Anita Amirrezvani.  Thanks.

Trena, without knowing the ISBN, I think it's probably a WL book, so it's likely waiting for the member to confirm the order.

I searched for it and all copies are wishlisted.  Check and see if it is on your bookshelf on 1 hour wish list hold.

Aha!  Now I see the tiny ! on my bookshelf that indicates it's on a member's wishlist, so you're right - it's waiting for someone to confirm they want it.  Great - thanks!

When you search, and get back no results, you will want to look on the left sife and make sure you are searching "All Books" not just "Posted Books". That's the likely reason you didn't see it in the search.
