Uncheck the box that says "Add to my Bookshelf on Hold" when you are logging that you've received a book.

OK, there is no way to do it automatically in settings?

There is no option in settings to do this automatically. By default PBS will add books you receive to your bookshelf and put them on Hold, but nobody else can see them unless you take them off hold.  This is done to make it easier for members to re-post books after they have been read. If you do not want them on your shelf you either have to uncheck the box "Add to my Bookshelf" as Mary said, or go to your bookshelf from time to time and remove them.

The add to bookshelf feature is why we can see all the places out book has been before we recieve it. And is only way I know for sure which books I've read are available to trade. I'd be lost without it.
