Why is it that when I am cleaning out my reminder list or wish list and I delete a book on page 5 the dang thing starts over on page 1.  Is there any way to fix it so it stays on the page I am looking at???

I know it's really annoying isn't it? Especially if your RL is like mine and many pages long.  I've started openign 2 windows. One with the sort I want and a 2nd where I search the book I want to delete.  I've noticed that if you do the availability sort it reorders the books every time you swich a page or something.  You have to do it by Date, Title or Author to not keep seeing books reordered.

Thanks for the tips, Mary. It's also darn frustrating when you're running a deal in the BB and are trying to remove books from your shelf quickly.

Thanks for the tip, Mary!

You can always submit feedback to the Team about this issue if it bothers you, Bertie. It's the best way to ensure that improvements are implemented.

That is definitely annoying.  I've noticed it bounces back to page 1 also.

I wish the books would come up in alphabetical order when listed according to availability.  I know it's probably a hassle for the Team to fix something like that though!

I did pm the office and told them about it.  Maybe they can look in to it for us
