I was just looking at one of the books on my bookshelf and noticed that there was an "order this book" button on the right instead of a "send to a friend" link like I am accustomed to.  

Is anyone else aware of this?  Is this intentional or is this an unwanted side effect of something else and will be corrected?

are you meaning like wanting to mail it to one of your buddies?  if so then you go to that buddy's wishlist and post it there and it will be offered to them.

If that isn't what you are talking about then I have no clue!!

I noticed that yesterday Linda.  I found the "mail it to a friend" link above the reminder list button when I clicked on the book title on my bookshelf and brought up the main info page.

Like Jean said its no longer on the bookshelf. To find the mail to a friend option click on the book then find it on the page there. On the upper right hand corner it will say You have this book posted. Then under that there are the options for mail to a friend and RL tag and so on. Above those options in blue link it says mail to a friend.

No . . . that's not what I meant.  It's not on the bookshelf, and it's not in the book listing either.  I'm not seeing it anywhere.  And, nowhere am I seeing a "you have this book" listed notation.

Instead of the "Send to a friend" link there is an "order this book" button on the individual book listing for books I have posted, and I have checked several books to make sure it isn't just one.

Are you sure you were looking at the same version as the one on your shelf? Did you get to the listing from your shelf or did you search by title and find the listing? All my books have the mail to a friend option on them and instead of saying order this book it says you have this book posted. If you havent try going to the listing from your shelf.

I think R&R need to give us a rest for a few weeks.  I can't find things I didn't even know were there to start with.  Let everybody catch up with new things for a WHILE.  oTHER THAN THAT THEY DO A FANTASTIC JOB.  bLANK blank cap key.

The thing is, Chris, I got to the individual listing by clicking on the listing in the bookshelf, so there is no question of it being a different ISBN.  However, I did figure out how to change it.  I had my account on vacation hold and as soon as I took it off hold, the "Send to a friend" link was back, at least on the individual listings.
