It wasn't on my list, either. The 48th book was by Robert Heinlein.

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.)

to be!  It may show up in your checked out books in a bit and then you can 
release it.

Shouldn't it be in my "checked out" books list? But it says I have no checked 
out books.  I'm really confused.
