When I recieve a book, and acknowledge that I got it, does it automatically go on my bookshelf ? I recieved 2 books last wk, and was checking out my shelf tonight, and those 2 books were listed on there, but saying they werent posted for swap ? Whats the deal neal ?

 

TIA

Seems like it's one step closer to the new Wish List!

I'm confused, more than normal.

when you mark a book as 'received', the system asks if you want to include this in your TBR pile. I selected no, and the same thing happened to me. My assumption is that TBR means "to be read". If you don't select it, you are giving PBS permission to relist it in your inventory so that it can be swapped at a later date. I'm guessing since I just signed recently too. I should probably only answer questions if I'm 100% sure I'm right; but where is the fun in that. Confusion can be fun and challenging

If you want to keep the book indefinitely, you can just delete it from your bookshelf

ok...I must be wrong since two other threads contain even more confused members posting grievances of a possible glitch

These changes are being made because  we are getting closer to the new Wish List. The newly added books are on your shelf but are on hold until you decide you want them to be offered to other members.

ETA: Robert stated that this has nothing to do with the new WL.

They combined the "Books to Repost" with the "Bookshelf" today. There's a thread in CMT where Robert announced it.

I had not idea they were going to this.  I don't like it much.  But I guess we have no choice. I hope we're not going to have people PMing us about when we're going to repost some books.

Mary, other members can't see anything on your shelf that has the red circle around the checkmark.
