It seems that the alot of books have disappeared from the system. I've tried to search for authors and books that I know were there previously, but aren't right now. Is something going on?

I've had the same problem this afternoon.  I figured it was a glitch and may work itself out.  if it hasn't within a day or two I was going to contact R&R but I didn't want to run to them without giving it a bit.  So you aren't alone..

Same here. I can find some books using ISBN, but can't using title or author.

if no book pull up is there still the drop down menu that shows posted books, all books, wl'd books, etc? 

I know in the past that sometimes a book wouldn't pull up because there wasn't one in the system but you could choose all books and it would pull it up

We are currently working to get this fixed. The goats wandered into the computer room and started eating the cables, awhhh!

Are you sure they didn't eat the missing books? Real goats do eat paper (i.e., books), so I guess it makes sense that cyber goats would eat cyber books.

This should now be fixed. We installed a new electric fence to keep the goats contained.

Me thinks I will keep the goat in tonight, as I don't want him to wander into any fences :)

Goats are very sneaky.

When I was a teenager, we had a neighbor that had a goat. We came home from grocery shopping one day and left the trunk open as we were ferrying bags into the house. We came back out to the car after one trip to find the goat standing IN the trunk rummaging through the bags. She had the audacity to look innocent when we caught her too.

 

We made sure to keep the trunk closed after that, lol!

So can I blame a stuffed goat for eating all the chocolate in the house?  "No, honey it wasn't me that ate all of your M&M's, it was my little stuffed goat, can't you see, that's why he's stuffed."
