That is the function to find things on this page. So if you are trying to just have it search the PBS site, it won't work. Are you searching a list that has those words on it?

I thought I could go to someone's shelf use the ctrl F and type in reminder and only my reminder list books ( if any) would show up.

Not exactly. If you type Ctrl+F and search for reminder, then what will happen is all the occurrences of the word "reminder" will be highlighted. One common place where this word appears is in the phrase "On My: Reminder List".

We have a few of the same titles on our wish lists, so to get an idea of how this works, you can click the Wish List button below my name. The go to the third page of my list (that's where the books we have in common are). Do ctrl+f and type Wish List. You should be immediately scrolled to the books that say "On My: Wish List". You can press the enter key a few times to go from book to book. It would work the same if you were looking at a bookshelf that had books from your reminder list on it.
