Subject: Separate profiles?

Hello,

I am interested in posting some of my children's books.  Is it possible to create a separate listing of books from my adult titles?  This way the children's books would be more visible.  Aside from unchecking all my adult titles on my bookshelf and then posting the children's titles, what other options are there?  Is it possible to have a different profile where I can post only my children's books?  (I do something like this on Netflix, where they have a profile and a separate Queue for renting movies.)

I know, unfortunately, it's not possible to have a separate account with mail going to the same address.

Thanks for your information or ideas,

Laurel

They have a new booklist feature that can be used.  Check it out.

I don't think there is any way to have two profiles for the same person.

If there are people you want to just look at your children's titles, other than waiting for them to go out in FIFO order, you might want to tag them somehow . Give them a tag that's somehow unique to you and would pull just those books up from your list if someone clicked on them. (Laurel's Children's books?)

Then you could put that in your profile or let people know what tag to look for and click on so they'd all pull up?

You can also put up a header to ask people to use the "Search ::: Filter ::: Browse by genre" function when looking through your shelf. Just make sure all your children's books are listed as such by genre.

You can add a genre for the search engine under the edit book data option.
