I feel like a twit...it's been a while since I requested any books beyond what is on my WL, but most of wishes have been fulfilled (oh were that true in every aspect!) so I thought I'd cruise the posted books and see what's new out there.  Except with the new PBS format, I can't figure out how to get to them!  There is no place on the new home page that will take me to the "posted books" page and if I do search, I have to select a genre.  One of the things I like about PBS is that I have discovered a lot of new authors that I might not have found otherwise by browsing the posted lists. 

Can someone provide guidance?

Humbly,

Darlene

From account page, click Search. A drop down menu will appear and one of the choices is Books Posted Today.

Well, that worked.  I could have sworn I had tried that unsuccessfully.  I wonder if there is a glitch in my computer or in PBS---yesterday I tried to do a specific search for a couple of books that I KNOW have been posted and so should be listed and I kept getting a blank page.

 

Ah, well, the important thing is I am back in business!  Off to find some books---thanks so much!

I have come to the conclusion I have a PBS glitch.  As I paged thru the posted books, after about four pages, the titles began to be repeated, although the number of books and page numbers continue to advance normally.

Is anyone experiencing this?  First, the posted book lists not coming up, and then repition of listings?

Thanks so much for the Under the Hood tip!  I was wondering what that was!
