Subject: Problem with Favorite Books on Home Page

I have unsuccessfully tried a couple of times to change 'My favourite Books' on my Home Page. 

I am putting in the correct ones, and then the screen shows some books I have never even read and for that matter would never read.  I tried it with titles and ISBNs.  I am entering the correct information, hit done, and the list looks okay then I am getting out and the screen shows books that are not even on my list!!!!!

I am baffled, maybe I would be better off just deleting that whole block of information rather than showing such non-sensical information.

Does anybody else have problems editing the my profile information.

Thanks.

Adding favorite books seemed to work best for me using only the 10 digit ISBN.

It is a known problem Jerry and they are working in it. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone and sometimes repeating the process sticks. I had issues with changing my books I am currently reading, but persistance paid off and I got it to stick after removing the old one, saving, then going back in and adding the new one a couple of times.

So it can be intermitant (sp)?  That fits, I was having difficulty with it yesterday afternoon, but came back later & tried ISBN and it worked just fine...figured I was just distracted earlier and wasn't doing it right lol!
