I posted a bunch of books when I wasn't awake enough to be paying close attention! The result is that some of my books now have title and/or author in lower case letters. How can I correct that?

Thanks for any advice!

when you go into the description on the right there will be buttons and the drop down has one that says edit book data, click on that and make your changes.

although you don't have to correct it if you don't want to

Yeah, it took me a minute to figure it out.  You have to actually click on the book title, which pops up a new window.  Then click on the arrow pointing down, way over on the right, to get the list which includes "edit book data".

Learn something new every day, dontcha? :-}

It is worth noting, too, that corrections will not appear instantaneously; they have to be reviewed by an edit coordinator before they are made "live" and available.

And it is a good idea to edit any data you find to be in error, to make  the database here on PBS be its' most correct it can be. It helps all of us. There is a whole thread about editing.  Let me go find the thread and I'll come back add the link here.  Here's the link:  http://www.paperbackswap.com/forum/topic.php?t=60867
