Learn how you can use "My Books” to remember your favorites, the ones you’ve read, your wish list, your collection, and which you want to get:
My Books lets you make you own personal annotations to our list of books:
FROM VIEW THE LIST
Our View the List page shows you our All-Time Great Children's Books. Beneath each book, there are two orange buttons. If you click the "My Books" button, a My Books window will appear.
FROM ANY BOOK PAGE
A "My Books" window appears on every book page. It is at the upper right corner. The tabs are visible, along with a checkbox for each. If you have checked a box previously, when you come back to that book page the next time, the boxes will still be checked.
At the instant when you click a checkbox, a tiny spinning graphic appears briefly. That is us recording your selection right then, with no need for you to click a "save" button.
FROM ANY PAGE
You can get to "My Books" from any page. There is a link at the top, next to "My Account:"
FROM MY ACCOUNT
In your "My Account" page, you can click the "My Books" link:
When you arrive at the "My Books" page, you'll see that there are several tabs across the top. At a glance, you can see the number of items checked in each tab, even without needing to click on the tab.
If you click on a particular tab, it will show you the books you've already selected in that list.
You can have a book in more than one list.
Here are the tabs:
LOCATOR: books you want to find at your local public library
FAVORITES: your list of favorite books
READ: books you have already read
WISH LIST: books you want from us
COLLECTION: books you already own
HIDDEN: books you want us to hide from you
MY NOTES: notes you write
At the bottom of each tab are some helpful links:
PRINT. Prints your list in a streamlined, printer-friendly format. You can select which books to include.
EMAIL. Emails your list in a streamlined format. You can select which books to include. You decide who to send your email to: yourself, or share with a family member or friend.
REMOVE. Removes the books you have checked.
HELP. Sends you to our help page.
