It is a tag that I have seen on a lot of books, but I have no idea what it means, except for bacon lettuce and tomato, and I'm guessing that's not it... lol... Soo what does it really stand for???

yeah like all my WL books are tagged CLB WL all my TBR are tagged CLBTBR. I do that so that when Im surfing I dont end up ordering books Ive already got or WLing books that are already on my WL.

I used my dogs name to tag my RL's.  I'm sure people are wondering when they see it. But I have to see "Jen's reminder list" all the time. They can see my dogs name.

Hi Eli,

I posted this question in the Live Help section of the Help Center at the top of our screens and received an answer in 15 minutes.

I have no clue what it stands for :) It's someone's own personal tag. Everyone is allowed to mark their tags in their own way. Personally I don't use them, but if I were an example I for a book on my WL might be LHGwl. To you it means nothing, but  it tells me on what "list" I have the book.

I hope this unravels it somewhat for you.
