My Reminder List used to list available books first, then the others.  I resorted it temporarily to find a particular book and now I can't get it back to where the books available to order now are listed first ... does anyone know how to do this?

thanks, Joan

I don't see a sort option for books that are available.  I'm not sure how you got it to sort that way in the first time. 

Sorry I can't be of any help.

Does it reset itself if you log off then back on??

The reminder list is, by default, sorted by availability (available first, then unavailable) and then title. When you sort the books differently, it changes that. (Incidentally, Suzanne, the first button on the reminder page says Resort. That's how you sort them.) And, no, it doesn't reset. I think the state is stored in a cookie.

I believe you can click here to reset it.

Thanks for the reset! I'd been annoyed that I couldn't change it back after DH sorted it by author. I *like* knowing what is currently available! :)

Thanks Tim!  I've resorted so many times I never realized it sorted by availability.
