I keep deleting the "books I'm currently reading" books but then they just show up again when I look at my profile. I click "edit" and delete and then click "done". It's really not a big deal but it's bugging me.  What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

They don't go away. That list is automatically filled. You can decide whether other members can see it by changing your privacy settings.

You can update it with the books you want there and then it'll only change when you change it.  At least that's been my experience.

If you don't enter the books yourself, the system will automatically populate it for you.  It won't ever be empty.

Yes, my experience is the same--if you put something in there, it sticks. If not, it puts in the most recent books you've received. It's annoying, but I usually just leave something of my own choice in there so it doesn't do that.

So, are you saying you can only post what you are currently reading, one time, and cannot update it?  I'm confused!

Gina--You can change it all you want.  But if you never put anything in there the site automatically puts the last books you ordered/marked received there.  But once you do add something, the site won't automatically change it anymore.

Hope that makes sense!

Laura, yes, that makes sense.  I understand now, thank you!
