Go to My Account > Settings  > Privacy Settings.  Under "Lists" there is a setting for whom can see your bookshelf.

Cheers,

Catt

go to your settings tab, then to the Privacy Controls link.  You determine from there who sees your shelf: everyone, no one, full or lite buddies.

There may be a glitch, because I saw that someone else in the BB was having the same problem.

I checked, and my setting is public--I want everyone to see my shelf!!!  I hadn't changed anything, so I had no idea how this could have happened.  Thanks for letting me know that there might be a glitch!

I just went and clicked on 3 or 4 others, and they're all doing the same, so it's not just you!  : )

It looks like you can see the bookshelf if you access it through the profile.  Maybe you should suggest this until the glitch is fixed?

Must be a glitch because I can't see my own shelf.

Definitely a glitch I can't see anyone's shelf.

Thanks all for putting my mind at ease!

I did add a note to access my shelf through my profile, and I did get a taker, so I'm a little happier :-)

The "Bookshelf" and "Wish List" buttons here in the forums should be working now. If it doesn't work for you, just refresh the page.

There are some "off-the-beaten-path" ways of getting to other members' shelves & WL that may not work for the next hour or so. I'll find and fix them all before breaking for lunch.
