I had the first 7 books listed in my TBR pile.  As I finished them, I planned to immediately post them.  However, they've disappeared and I can't repost them.  Does anyone have any info.?

Try to resort your TBR list. Sometimes sorting by Author doesnt allow you to see all your books. And if you have received them through PBS credit swaps you can find them on your Bookshelf, on Hold. You can repost them right from there, also. At the top left, make sure to change View to All Books, scroll down to the book you would like to post, click on the square all the way on the left for that book, and choose Post at the top. You can repost mulitple books from there, too.

Since these are all wish listed books, you might want to wait and read them all before reposting so you can increase the chances of sending them out together. To do this, post the first one. When it's requested, use the PM button to see who requested it and click on her name and then on her wish list tab. She'll likely have some of the others on her wish list too. If you post them from her wish list page, they'll be offered to her, and when she accepts they'll be added to the request on your account page. Then you just wrap them into one package and the total postage will be less than sending out individual books.

If the first requestor doesn't want multiple books, you can post the second one and try again with someone else.

LOL, I see Jeri and I were giving you the same suggestion at the same time. :-)

Try resorting your TBR list.  Also like someone said if you got them through PBS they might already be on your shelf but on hold. But I would do like the others and just post the 1st and see if they have any others on their shelf to help save postage.

I've found that sorting by author is the least accurate way of looking for a book.  Frequently, the author gets listed by middle initial.  For instance  - sorting my books by author - the very first book is Caravans by James A. Michener.  Obviously, Michenor isn't the first author by alphabet.  All too many times the middle initial will be what the author gets listed by.

did you happen to mark the number of stars to rate the book once you finished it?  if you did, the book is now on your Books I've Read list.

if not, then what the others suggested is the way to go...or do a search on your TBR shelf, put in the author and they should all pull up
