After I post books, I like to go to "Books Posted Today" and see my books posted.  I know, it's kind of weird, but it's mine own wee quirk.  I know I used to be able to do that.  Now I can't.  That makes me sad and unfulfilled.  Like an artist who never sees their work hung.  Why did R & R change that?  Did other people NOT like seeing their posted books?

I'm not sure what you are not seeing, if you go under Search there is a Tab for Books Posted Today and you pull them up by hour they were posted...works fine for me...maybe you need to reboot and clear out cookies...


ETA:  perhaps if they are a WL item they may not show up on there because you wouldn't be able to order them.

I don't think you're weird.  I would have done that myself if I'd thought of it! =0)  You've just given me one more quirk to add to my list!

I think it can take a few min before the posted books appear on Books Posted Today--they have to make it onto the servers or something.  But you can see yourself on Under the Hood I think if you look.  That's more real-time than Books Posted Today.

Having experimented with this because someone asked me on Live Help, I can tell you that it generally takes one hour for your books to show in the Books Posted Today, or even be searchable as a book listed, if it is an only copy. Pretty much to the minute.

Subject: I do that as well

I always look for my posted books.

I usually go browsing the posted today books for my latest selections.
