I would like to make a link to my reminder page.  Saw someones explanation, but got confused.  Can someone explain it to me, I am not very knowledgable when it comes to the computer...

I believe you have to tag the books, then link to that. If you post a link to your actual RL or WL, it will show the person looking, not yours. Use a unique tag; many many people are doing this.

If I'm wrong, I'll be interested to learn too.

You of course have to tag each book. Then, under Community, at the bottom is Tag Cloud; at the bottom of that page is Your Tags. You would click on it so the list is on your screen, and then paste that link as you did.

Adrienne, I go to the book's page or to my RL and put a tag on it that says "rlrf" and then you can click on that and it takes you to a list with just your tags.  So You can then use that URL on that page as a link.

Make sure your "Tag Settings" is "ON".  Sometimes that's the reason it won't show up for whoever clicks on your link.

Your link doesn't work Sandy. 

I don't think I'd mix the two lists, because it may confuse people.  Besides your WL is up near your avi and anyone can click on it any time.

Do you have to tag each book or is there a way to tag them all at the same time?

Adrienne I haven't done it but it seems I read elsewhere that you have to do each one seperately - bummer.

Yep, they all have to be done separately.  Having a tag option on the RL might also be a nice feature, though!

I tag mine OzzieRL. Ozzie is my dog.  I had the link in my siggy but I have so many books in my TBR that I don't want any deal offers right now. I just want them tagged for when I go back to doing Box of Books.  I just tag a bunch every so often and then delete the tagged ones from my RL. I don't want a huge combined list when they finally implement the new WL.
