Interesting. I went to my Preferences tab, and my Block Adult Content setting 
was already at No.  Just to see what would happen, I changed the setting to 
Yes, and looked at the checkout list -- nothing had changed. BUT when I went 
back and changed the setting to No again,  I can now see 113 books.  

And, Partisan now shows up on "My Checked Out Books."  

So. I have just released Partisan, and it disappeared from my page. It SHOULD 
turn up back in the "Ready for Checkout" list. Right?

Hope you are following all this, Tim.
