The mystery deepens. The checkout list shows 110 titles for me.

Thank you for your kind reassurance, Mayrie. It's still not showing up as a book I have checked out, but I'll keep checking into my account this evening and tomorrow.

But I'm also still troubled by why neither Tim nor I could see this title in the list to begin with, and why it didn't show up in a Search for either of us. Even when Roger pointed it out as the 48th title from the top, it wasn't there in my list.

My list of titles "Ready for Checkout" is currently showing 78. Does this seem right?

(I've been following this forum in an attempt to be better educated in case I ever do get approved to proof. Now I've learned my lesson about being TOO curious, though.)

Hi there,

This has happened before, and I can't remember how it got solved. Don't feel bad! At least we know where the book is supposed to be! It may show up in your checked out books in a bit and then you can release it.

You're right, it should show up on the page of your checked out books, but it's just a glitch that it isn't there.

Hope it shows up there in a bit so that you can release it.

Keep us posted.

And no worries!

Mayrie

OK, somebody needs to help me. When I go to "My Checked Out Books," I am told "You have no checked out books."

Yet I do find Partisan in my "downloads" on my desktop -- I guess I got it by clicking on the link in Em Rose's email, just out of curiosity to see how it would show up. It led me to a blank screen, so I thought that was that, and I didn't give it another thought until I saw my name on this list.

I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to leap in, and now I just need to figure out how to put it back for Tim. It says "Once you have finished proofreading a book, click "Check in" in the Action column...." but I don't know where this is. Shouldn't it be in my "checked out" books list? But it says I have no checked out books. I'm really confused.

ACK! That is a mistake. How did I get it? Lordy. Let me figure out how to put it back. I'm not even an approved proofreader yet.

I followed the link and it stated that the book was checked by another volunteer. Thanks.

Hi Tim,

Here is the direct link to the checkout for that book:

Hope that helps!
