I got the same thing. I would imagine it has something to do with the free credit thing changing today. I posted more books and now it says I only need to post -8 more to get my free credits (which I got 3 months ago) LOL I have a feeling the system is glitchy with the change.

Hmm, ok. Come to think of it, this happened immediately after I posted a book to my shelf.

You must be right. It must be a glitch. Thanks for letting me know you had the same message. :)

There was a glitch earlier that was suppose to have been fixed. I would send a feedback to R&R

Kim -- If you still see the wrong message, try the old ctrl+f5 trick to force the page to refresh. If you still see it after that, it's time to send in a feedback.
