In recent weeks, I noticed when I receive a book from another member, it isn't going into my TBR list.  There used to be a checkbox you could uncheck if you didn't want the new book in TBR, but it is gone.  When I finish a book and want to repost it, I have to put in the ISBN.  It isn't hard, but it will stop tracking the miles on a book.  Anyone know what happened?

I got 6 books in the mail today and I checked them into the system as usual. I even unchecked the box for one book I plan on keeping. I just checked my TBR list and the other 5 are there.

It's still asking me if I want to add them to my TBR.

Ditto, I am still getting the option to add to TBR.

Are you using an alternate address? Since that feature is intended to be used for ordering books for other people, it behaves differently; e.g. it doesn't give you the RWAP options. It makes sense that it also wouldn't put the book on your own TBR, but I don't know for sure if that's the case.

Thanks, Cathy.  That is exactly what is happening.  I mail my books from my office in a different town from where I live.  The mail carrier at work said the post master was upset that their post office wasn't getting credit on my printed postage.  I changed the address on my account to work address and then have been requesting books to come to my home address.  I did this a few weeks ago and it never occured to me that was when this started.  I will just start having books shipped to my work address or start mailing from home.  Thanks for your help.
