Hi there!

I tried posting 56 books earlier today from a list in a text document.  When it uploaded, it said it posted 53 books, but not which ones!  I expected to be able to verify what the titles were that got entered.

I've tried sorting my bookshelf based on Posted and Descending.  That is returning alphabetical order, regardless of what sort order I select.  I've also tried searching the Posted books based on today's date, but keyword search does not check post date as part of the search area, got no results back.


I've also tried downloading a copy of my bookshelf, but it has no "Posted Date" to do any sorting.

Any ideas?  I am not sure if better to attempt to delete them all, if somehow able to unpost books and repost them again one by one, very annoying!

Please help!  I've got these books in piles next to me in the order they were on the file to upload, would like to box them up!

You may have done this already -- when sorting did you select view all books vs hold or posted??  I just tried sorting by date/decening and it gave me the last date I posted.  books. Try pressing F5 to refresh your screen, logging  out of the site, clearing cache and loging back into the site.

I've gone thru the list and found the other dozen books or so.  When I tried to re-add them, it said some of them were already posted. Not sure if I had duplicates, or if books that were previously posted were on my keeper pile, will work on it more tomorrow. Thanks for your assistance!

I never post more than 50 at a time, because the system doesn't display them in the same order as posted (if you post over 50, the ones over 50 get mixed up on the next page and are hard to find)

And with only 50, all 50 will be on the first page of your bookshelf, and you can easily double check to see which ones are missing. But, having already done it, you should be able to find them on the first 2 pgs of your bookshelf, and as was stated, be sure to count those that are already off because of WLs.

When you figure out which ones did not post, try posting them individually. They may well be books that are not in the system, and you will have to post all their information. Or they may just not have went with the rest of them, I've had that happen. No rhyme or reason, just some don't go with the entire batch.

Good Luck!

Have you tried the button to "view my public bookshelf"?  And if you sort by author, the number can be less than the number sorted by title or by post date.  Anthologies without an author/editor name drop off the list.

In addition, books that are WL might not show up as posted.
