I remember seeing somewhere that the only way to find out if you own the only copy of a book was to put it on your reminder list. I do not see how I can do this. When I go to my BookShelf there isn't an option to put it on my Reminder list. Do I need to go and search the title then add it to my Reminder list or how is this done?!?!

Thanks for any help.

Yes, you have to add the book to your RL first. It says Copies Available: # If the # is 1, it's the only avail. copy You might want to search by ISBN. But I just go to my bookshelf, click on the title, and add it to my RL

Yes, you can't do it directly from your shelf.  You can click on the title in your shelf and do it from the full book description that comes up.

Yes, you can do it directly from your shelf. Hover over the book and when the little info bubble appears, there is a RL button in it. Saves a few clicks.

ditto to the hover suggestion, saves some time but not sure how much since hovering lately has taken a bit of time as well!

RL is the way to check if you've already posted the book. 

if you haven't, you can bring up the book listing first, and if it doesn't have an Order button, then you know there isn't one already posted - so yours will be the first copy.  that was something i thought of after the last time i wanted to know this about some books i hadn't posted yet.
