I was going to put some books on my Reminder List but when I search for them I can't find them.  I was wondering if there was a way to put books on the reminder list without looking them up in the search engine.

Have you tried searching All books? They may not be posted so they wont show up in a general search.

I've tried that but can't seem to come up with anything.

Renee, are you searching for them by title only or author only as well as by ISBN?  I recently searched for a book by ISBN which did not come up, but when I searched by title it came up with the same ISBN # listed.

Try looking them up on Amazon.com.  If they have an ISBN in the Amazon listing, try entering the ISBN in the PBS search engine, this often causes the book to be added to the PBS catalogs.

Also make sure your spelling it right. If your not sure try googleing it. Google is pretty good at figuring out what you mean and giving you the correct spelling.

I found out how to do it.  I went to advanced search and found a tag for Oprah Book club books and it listed them all for me.  Thanks everyone for helping me.
