I just posted Laura Lippman's "No Good Deeds" to my bookshelf.  Unfortunately it is showing on my public bookshelf as "Every Secret Thing". 

The isbn on the back of my book is wrong, it has a different isbn inside.

The problem is I want to remove it from my shelf and repost with the correct isbn- but it isn't showing up on my private shelf at all.

Help!!!

It sometimes takes a few moments to show up there...check again in 5 minutes and you should be able to delete it. (And yes, I've had the same thing happen with different ISBNs on the outside and the inside of the book -- crazy!)

Do you have it by author sort?  Sometimes books are hidden by that.  Try date posted sort.

Not under author or date either.

I see it on your shelf. If you can't find it, I could order it, and then you could cancel the order. That ought to remove it.

Do you have your shelf sorted by "books on hold" instead of by "posted books"?

Thank you Patty!!  That was the problem, it was sorting "books on hold".
